Power Cut Campus Wide – IT Systems Affected

UPDATE – All infrastructure systems are now back operational, bar some leftover wireless issues in Life Sciences. Please report any minor issues i.e. PC not powering on to the Service Desk and they will be resolved promptly. Should your IP telephone not be operational, remove the network cable from the rear, wait a few seconds and replace – this may help to resolve the issue.


There has been a short power outage in this area of Dundee. Most systems have recovered, but there may be a delay in getting all system back operational. Please bear with us at the moment.

Please contact the IT Service Desk should you have systems which remain down.
