ITD will be performing maintenance on University IT systems and services this Saturday, 12th November 2016. The full-day maintenance will commence from 6am and will complete by 6pm and as a result most services will experience periods of disruption.  

For staff and on-campus students: 

Staff should expect intermittent outages as systems are restarted following maintenance updates. Network connections as well as internet access will be temporarily unavailable in different locations across campus during the day.  


For off-campus students: Moodle and student email should NOT be affected.

• No work is planned on Moodle. However, we recommend that you download any materials (such as readings and lecture recording) you require over the weekend to your local system to make sure you have access in case of any unplanned outages or disruptions.

• Student Email (Office365 emails will be available throughout the day.   This event is one of ITD’s scheduled maintenance windows, during which essential work is carried out to enhance and improve University systems.   The schedule of maintenance windows for the remainder of 2016 and 2017 can be found on the ITD website ( ). 

Service Desk support will be available during the weekend - please contact or if you are experiencing problems after the maintenance outage.
