The maintenance work will start at 7am on Saturday 26 July through to 11:59pm on Sunday 7 July 2014.

We aim to minimise disruption, however you may notice brief interruptions to some IT services over the weekend.

This will affect the following services:

  • SITS and SRSWeb (Student services)
  • Starrez (Student accommodation)
  • Concept (Estates Helpdesk system)Printing Services (Students might not be able to print)

Blackboard, Office 365 and Google mail services will not be affected, and Library services should operate as normal.

Why we have planned maintenance weekends

As part of our commitment to provide IT services with minimal disruption, there are three scheduled weekend maintenance periods per year.

We carry out essential systems upgrades and also test our business continuity processes. The completion of this kind of maintenance over weekend periods minimizes disruption to teaching and business functions.

The next IT services weekend maintenance periods are scheduled for January 2015

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