IT incident 5 May 2017 – a response from ISD and Estates

We wanted to update UCL staff and students following the major loss of IT services on Friday 5 May 2017. Firstly, we want to apologise for the significant impact this had on staff and students’ ability to work across the whole university. We all rely on this technology round the clock and any loss of service is frustrating.
