We have approximately 100 staff working to develop, support and manage:

  • IT Infrastructure Services such as the University’s network, wifi and telephones, data centres, servers, data storage and research computing systems.
  • Enterprise Applications which hold the university’s key data such as student, staff, financial and course information, and manage online processes like student registration, coursework submission and examination marking.
  • IT Partnerships and Service Delivery activities such as managing our IT suppliers, dealing with IT Security, providing help and support for events, user devices and student computing facilities and working in partnership with colleges to improve services.

In support of the IT Vision the division also manages the portfolio of projects which comprise the University’s strategic IT investment programme to deliver new and enhanced technology-based services in support of the University’s strategic goals.
