June 15th - 17th Infrastructure Upgrade

A substantial upgrade of our IT infrastructure is planned for the weekend of Fri 15th - Sun 17th June. After further consultation with staff, we have reduced the scope of the upgrade work and will be working through the night, aiming to restore the majority of services by 9am Saturday 16th June.
However, if there are unexpected problems, services may take until midday to return.

During this time the majority of University IT services will be unavailable. However, some services including the University website will remain available. In addition, staff can continue to use email via mail clients such as Thunderbird, Outlook and Macmail as well as some smartphones.

Up-to-date information is available via our blog on the link below. This will be updated regularly as we approach the upgrade and during the upgrade as each milestone is reached, taking down services and then returning them to operation.

Full details and updates during the maintenance period can be found at:
