Blackboard will be unavailable on 10 and 20 July and between these dates you should not make any changes.

Your upgrade

Students continuing their studies in the new term will have their University IT account and email will be upgraded. If you are finishing your studies or graduating before October you will not be affected.
Keep checking your University email as you will be receiving an email telling you when your University IT account and email will be upgraded. On this day you will not be able to access your University email and any PCs on campus.
If you have received this email but you are working for the University as a member of staff it is important to tell us so that your work is not affected.

After the upgrade
