Why we have planned maintenance weekends

Maintenance weekends are planned to enable us the time to carry out essential systems upgrades and also test our business continuity processes. We do this work during weekend periods to minimise disruption to teaching and business functions. There are three scheduled weekend maintenance periods per year.

The dates are planned a year in advance and are published on the University website along with other key dates in the University Calendar.
