MAASTRICHT. Monday, 6 January 2020, the first day back after the Christmas holidays, staff and students still cannot use the UM’s e-mail system. There is no access to the Internet and the data files on network disks either. It may take a few more days before all of this is up and running again, the UM announced in Update #12.
The education programmes can take place as usual. The Student Portal, the timetables (exclusively read-only), Blackboard and the study materials are accessible. The university library is operational as well.
The UM has appealed once again for everyone to reset their passwords before 6 January. So far, about fifteen thousand users have done so. As soon as maastrichtuniversity-mail is working again, all messages that have been sent since 23 December, will arrive. According to the update, there will be about half a million.
The UM furthermore announced that tomorrow’s New Year’s reception in the Bonnefanten museum will go ahead as planned.
