The university network will not be available and buildings will be closed on Saturday 31 July
On 31 July, the heart of the university network will be replaced. This maintenance will make the network safer, more future-proof and faster. The university network will be unavailable on Saturday, 31 July from 09.00 and this will last the whole day (with possible extension into Sunday 1 August).
What will this mean for you?

Will you be able to work remotely?
- The university network will not be available. If you use Remote Workplace (Citrix): access to Remote Workplace will also not be possible.

Will you have access to your email?
You will probably have access to your emails. All student accounts have been migrated to Outlook in Office365. Again, if you are requested to log on to a Microsoft service, then possibly this may fail.
