Phone Planned Outage: 28th October

At 6pm on Monday 28th October the University phones will be out of service for up to 2 hours. This will affect all land-lines on both the Whiteknights & London Road campuses.

This is so that equipment that has been configured and tested can be linked into the telephone system ready for the porting of numbers onto the new SIP lines from Vodafone.  These couple of hours will include the physical plugging work and testing that nothing has been affected.

During this time outbound calls will only be available on mobile and inbound direct calls will not work.  Nor will the lift phones or alarm systems.  Cash tills and refuge call points will not be affected.  Inbound calls to the switchboard will work and access the IVR system which will give access to Security for emergency calls.

If you have any queries about this work or the outage please email

Apologies for any inconvenience caused during this essential work.
