ITD will be performing maintenance on University IT systems and services on Saturday, 18th  March 2017. 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 unavailable in different locations across campus during the day.

For off-campus students:

  • Moodle should be available throughout the weekend.

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.

  • Student Email (Office365 emails      should 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 2017 can be found on the ITD website ( ).
