Notice of power outage: Loss of some IT facilities on Thursday, 4th March

10:40AM, 1 March 2021

Due to planned power work on the morning of Thursday, 4th March 2021 between 06:00am – 08:00am, there will be a power outage affecting most buildings in Central and West Parks.

HOW WILL THE WORKS AFFECT ME?

This will mean a loss of power to all IT equipment in those buildings and no IT services, including networking, will be available in those buildings.

Core IT systems and services will still be accessible from elsewhere on and off campus, but any IT labs, PCs or local systems located in one of the affected buildings will not be accessible during the work.

ACTION REQUIRED?

Please be aware that all other equipment will lose power during this work so it is recommended that you safely shut down your devices prior to the work and where possible make arrangements to switch them back on following the work. IT Services will not be able to switch on individual machines as a priority.

IT Services will ensure that core services in the buildings such as networking and telephony are restored and have taken steps to safely shut down computer labs prior to the work and restore service in time for teaching. 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO STUDENTS AND STAFF OF THE UNIVERSITY?

The purpose of this work is to enhance power reliability across the campus.

TIMESCALE?

The work will be taking place on Thursday, 4th March 2021 between 06:00 and 08:00am.

CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION AND HELP?

If you have any questions about the power work itself contact the FM Helpdesk and for any IT specific questions please email the IT Service Desk.
