Website going dormant from Friday 15 November at 17:00 until Monday 18 November at 07:00
2013-11-09

A modern, crisp new design for the UFS website will launch on Friday 15 November 2013.
 
The Division: Strategic Communication, in association with ICT Services, has gone to extraordinary lengths to equip the university with a trendy, user-friendly site in keeping with international standards. Focus groups, consisting of staff and students from across all three campuses, were closely involved in the design proses. This will result in a fully-endorsed and proudly-Kovsies website streaming across the globe.
 
Blackboard (https://learn.ufs.ac.za), GroupWise and the staff Intranet will not be affected by the switch-over.

PeopleSoft Student Self Service will still be available (https://studreg.ufs.ac.za/) as well as KovsieLife Student Self Service (on Bloemfontein Campus only) (http://kovsielife.ufs.ac.za/selfservice) for examination results.  
 
Please take note of the following webpages that will, however, not be available from Friday 15 November at 17:00 until Monday 18 November at 07:00 to users.
 
Webpages and systems that will be affected:
• UFS website
• Faculty and departmental webpages
• KovsieLife
• Community websites (Afras, Sasse, Vryfees, etc)
• Conferences
• Classified advertisements
• Podcasts
• Student Self Service
• Website administration systems (backend)
• BB Content
• SMS Gateway system
 
We can hardly wait to share this thrilling milestone in UFS history with you.
