Emergency Maintenance work to Wireless Service

There will be emergency work on Tuesday 3rd Sept. 16:30 – 18:30 (BST) in order to resolve an issue with one of the Wireless Controllers which provides load sharing and resilience for our wireless network. 

The service is currently working but with Welcome Week approaching, it is imperative that we get the second unit back onto the network and working in a stable manner.

During the time the work is being carried out by the engineer, there will be small outages and the service will be at risk. 
Information Services apologises for any inconvenience during this time and thank you for your patience and co-operation.

Books that are remaining in the Library will continue to be available for use by students and staff.

Once books are moved to Floor 3, a fetching service will be provided from the Library Service Desk on request.
From 16th April, Floor 2 will close and Floor 3 will be open for study space and access to books, increasing capacity in the Library by approx. 200 seats.
