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

- Timetabling will be unavailable on Saturday and Sunday
- Filelinx is being replaced with a new service called MyDrive
You will still be able to access Blackboard, Office 365, Google Mail and Library Search.
Why we have planned maintenance weekends
Outage 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.
This weekend we will be making changes to the way you login to University resources to improve your online experience.
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.
