To all students enrolled in CIS Undergraduate Courses that start (or enter) their 2nd year of studies in 2023/2024 academic year:

Please note that due to the ongoing labour dispute (strike) at the University, some buildings will be closed this and next week. As a result, we will have our Induction meeting in Zoom, which you can access by opening the following link:

Also, you can use the following information:
Meeting ID: 871 7934 3936
Password: 593180

You MAY be asked to authenticate yourself using your University login and password.
If you don’t have Zoon on your computer, then you can download the Zoom client or app. Details are here:
As far as I know, Livingstone Tower will be closed, but some University labs may be still open so you can use them for Zoom as well. However, their availability may be changing the last moment.
Once our session starts, I will have very limited ability to reply to your email. But please don’t worry if you can’t participate for some reason. All the announcements and slides will be also posted on our noticeboard:

See you soon online,
