We are delivering an award winning project which will improve the University’s green credentials and reduce our carbon emissions.

We have scheduled the work to take place on weekends in June and July to minimise disruption.

On 29-30 June and again on 13-14 July, the following IT services will be unavailable:

  • Home and shared areas will be unavailable for students located at Cavendish and Regent.
  • Local access to SITS will be unavailable.
  • Network access at the halls of residence receptions and Chiswick Sports Ground will be subject to a brief ten-minute outage.

The project, which is improving the University’s data centres - a key part of the IT infrastructure, won the Best Energy Saving Idea 2013/14 at the recent Green Impact awards. It will deliver improved efficiencies in power usage, cooling, network uptime and availability, and will ultimately offer the University some significant annual savings.

We would also like to remind you of the IT Services weekend maintenance on 27-28 July, as indicated in the University Calendar.

We appreciate your patience while we carry out this essential work.
