Description: A Major ICT Maintenance Window  will occur over the weekend from 
5:00pm 4th December 2015 AEST to 11:00pm 6th December 2015 AEST.  Major ICT Maintenance Windows, are weekends when the entire JCU Network and all ICT services are unavailable to allow upgrades to be performed on essential services.  These weekends (2 per year) are chosen following extensive consultation with the University Community to avoid study periods one and two, as well as taking into account constraints such as:

  • Study period census dates
  • Subject result release dates
  • QTAC offer dates
  • Enrolment periods
  • Graduation ceremonies
  • Payroll runs

The overall criterion we adhere to in selecting these dates are to minimize impact on academic activities.  There is a significant amount of infrastructure work scheduled for this maintenance period.
