Computer lab maintenance schedule

The 24 hour computer lab’s maintenance is carried out on a staggered schedule with maintenance on half of the machines in each laboratory being carried out on Saturday night and the other half of the machines in each laboratory undertaken on Sunday nights.  The maintenance is carried out between the hours of 12:00am (Midnight) and 6:00am both nights.  If you are using a computer which is scheduled for maintenance at this time, a 5 minute warning notice will appear letting you know that the computer is about to go into maintenance mode.

Once the warning notice appears you must save your work. The computer will be unavailable during this maintenance time frame.

All other general computer laboratories have a daily maintenance period between 12:00am (Midnight) and 6:00am across all campuses.

Ask us! If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact the ICT Service Desk.
