Check Turnitin system status

If you can access Blackboard but Turnitin is slow and you cannot submit your work, then it is worth checking to see if the system is being affected by a service disruption.

For the latest updates on the status and availability of the Turnitin service go to the following page: System Status.

IMPORTANT: Only messages referring to TurnitinUK are relevant to you.

Their system status page provides details of any issues affecting Turnitin and the time it took place. They are published using Twitter. You can choose to follow them @TurnitinStatus or sign up to receive email alerts.

Time conversion: Times shown in the Twitter status updates relate to USA time – PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) or PST (Pacific Standard Time). Convert the time shown using this link: Time Zone Converter (Use ‘USA – California – San Francisco’ as the place to convert from.)

No service disruption and still cannot submit your work online?

If there is not a service disruption taking place and you are having difficulties submitting, please check the following article for help: Preparing for online submission: Turnitin Assignment
