Recent periods of studentcentral unaccessibility

So far this academic year there have been two brief interruptions to studentcentral:

  1. On Sat 1 Oct the studentcentral login page was unavailable between 3am and 11am. This was due to a corrupted file following a regular ‘rolling restart’ of the service completed out of hours. The issue was identified and the team will monitor closely to ensure it does not impact access if it should reoccur.
  2. On Thursday 7 Oct between 2pm and 2:45pm the university experienced a network issue preventing servers external to the university accessing content inside the university. This affected studentcentral logins, blogs.brighton.ac.uk logins, studentfolio, sharepoint, unicard top-ups and many more services. The network issue is still under investigation.
