Important IT information – Returning Students

The University’s IT systems are in the process of change and as the new academic year starts there is some important information regarding these changes that you need to be aware of.

Removal of Individual Webpages

After extensive consultation across the University it has been agreed that this service no longer offers relevant and suitable functionality and will be removed from operation. With effect from the start of the academic year, any student who had previously used this service will still have access to their content (found in their individual workspace) but will not be able to publish to their webpage. Alternate services that can be used are listed below.

Should you have any questions regarding this change please e-mail it.services@lboro.ac.uk
