Localised Two-day Power Shutdown in August to Affect IT Services

Over the weekend of 4-6 August the Estates Office carried out essential and statutory maintenance to the University's power system.

This had an impact on the University's IT system over the weekend as well as completely shutting down access to University House services. Preparatory work started at 18:00 on Friday 4 August and all systems and access were disrupted.

The University website was not available between 18:00 on Saturday until Monday am and the University telephone system was affected for half an hour at the start of work on Friday at 18:00hrs and at the end of the work this morning (Monday).

NB. Those who tried to submit online application forms for employment at the University will not have been able to do so over the weekend.

If you have any concerns about the disruption experienced then you are advised to contact the relevant department. Visit the Contact Us page for telephone numbers.
