Hi all

Heads up.

The maintenance team propose to take main power off the PAHC building to undertake essential safety works on the electrical system. This is planned to happen on Saturday 3rd Sep at 08.00, the works will take approximately 4-5 hours.

The University connection to the Internet is fed from the PAHC building so when power is lost we have a window of up to1 hour where battery backup will keep the connection alive but after that the connection will be powered off.

ALL network access and Internet based services will be affected when power is lost, this includes:

  • Internet access to all sites either via cable or Wi-Fi connection
  • LS access
  • Panopto
  • Email access including OWA - no email will be lost but none will be delivered or sent including to/from mobile phones
  • VPN access to all systems
  • Library access

The following systems will not be affected:

  • Phones
  • Printing - on campus
  • Logging on to PC's - on campus
  • Access to network drives - on campus

If you have any queries about the power off please contact Maintenance team, if you have any IT related queries please contact your ever helpful IT team:
