Scheduled Maintenance

IT Scheduled Maintenance

The goal of Scheduled Maintenance is to maintain central IT facilities on a regular basis while minimising interruption to normal business functions, and also considering vital operations in the University calendar such as enrolments, teaching, examinations and graduation.

These dates have been discussed with the IT Forum members and have been considered by Deans and Directors. Adjustments were made based on feedback from numerous faculty and admin unit members.

Notes

  • Change Freeze” means changes to student-focussed systems will be avoided, to minimise risk at start of Autumn & Spring sessions (ie. enrolments, orientation and 1st week of session.)
  • eLearning available” means that student-focussed, teaching & learning systems will not be impacted by any IT maintenance.
  • We would appreciate any feedback about other areas where critical activities have a dependency on IT services.  An area identified in 2013 was the entertainment activities in UniCentre (UniBar, UniHall) requiring POS facilities.  We are aware of international dependencies, especially UOWD being six or seven hours behind Wollongong time.

For more information on these scheduled maintenance activities, contact ITS on ext 3775.
