Major ICT maintenance in the weekend of 2 and 3 December

Published on 08-11-2023 13:00
In the weekend of 2 and 3 December the biannual major ICT maintenance will be carried out on the network. This means that during the whole weekend (from Friday 00:00 to Sunday 24:00) we cannot guarantee the availability of all ICT services and facilities.

Please take into account that ICT services and facilities may be temporarily unavailable

Our network has been built in such a way that all ICT systems and services in principal continue to function when one or more parts malfunction. During the weekend, however, we carry out maintenance on crucial parts of the network, which means there is a chance that ICT systems and services might be affected and fail. It goes without saying that we do everything in our power to keep these failures to a minimum. 

Saturday 2, and Sunday 3 December

Keep in mind that ICT systems and services short or longer periods of time may fail. Think for example of:

  • Canvas
  • Email
  • UvA sites
  • SIS
  • SAP
  • Datanose
  • GLASS (course registration)
  • ICT workplace
  • Facilities on campus such as wifi, printers and coffee and candy machines.

System administrators will test systems following the maintenance work. In principle, you can use the systems and services during the work, but again, we cannot guarantee their operation.

Why is a network maintenance weekend needed?

Regular maintenance of ICT systems and networks ensures that these remain accessible, available and modern for our students, lecturers, researchers and all other staff.
