While every effort was undertaken to minimise the impact of major service changes implemented for 2012, unexpected issues occurred once all new systems were in combined operation under the load of a full student cohort and lecture schedule.

Information Services and Faculty IT teams are very proud to have delivered improved student access to IT facilities across campus in time for the start of Semester 1 2012. Student Mobility was a key objective of the Business Investment Programme.
