Important Update

Shortly before 22:00 on Wednesday 14 April, the University experienced a cyber-attack which has impacted all of its systems. Please be reassured that our IT colleagues are working hard to investigate and rectify the situation as soon as possible.

Most live online teaching resumed on Monday 19 April, and you can safely access Canvas, Teams and Zoom as normal. Sessions that require remote access to specialist applications may have to be rescheduled. You can continue to attend in-person on-campus teaching but University PCs in our LRCs are currently unavailable.

Students who were due to submit assignments should not worry and will not be disadvantaged as a result of this attack. Deadlines that fell between 21:00 on Wednesday 14 April and midnight on Friday 16 April will be given a new deadline of midnight on Thursday 22 April. Any dates after that period will be given an extension of 5 days. All students will be contacted by their module/programme leaders to confirm arrangements for their course this week.

Please read the latest updates about the cyber-attack and the impact on learning and teaching here.

We apologise for the inconvenience this situation has caused and will continue to keep you updated. You can check the status of all our systems by visiting
