Avoid parking tickets at our car park - Register your car

From now on all employees at AU must have the same access to parking areas. This means that the bar to our car park will be open at all times and that you must register your car in the parking system to avoid tickets.

Read more here where you will also find a link to the registration page.

Remember to register your guest

When you have visitors, you can also register their car in the system. The parking permit is valid from the moment you register the license number of the car and until midnight. Hence, it is advisable to register the guest before arrival and if the visit is more than one day you must remember to extend the registration every day.

Parking spaces for Official cars and handicapped

Note that parking without proper permit on spaces reserved for handicapped and official cars will be fined

Limited IT 3 - 4 Feb.

IT maintenance work will affect AU’s IT systems and services and cause interruptions at different times during the weekend of 3 and 4 February 2018.

AU IT and AU Finance and Estates Project Development will carry out maintenance work from Saturday 3 February at 00:01 am to Sunday 4 February at 11:59 pm. The work is necessary in order to ensure a high level of operational stability and IT security for AU staff and students.

Throughout the weekend, it will be possible to use AV equipment locally in lecture theatres and classrooms, and work locally on computers – i.e. without being connected to central IT systems, shared drives, the video center, AU’s network and the internet.

The following services will be affected by the maintenance work

  • Saturday from 00.01 am to 11.59 pm, IT and telephone services will be affected periodically because of updates. Most services and systems will be affected from 00.01 am – 09.00 am, however, some services and systems will be affected until 11.59 pm.
  • Sunday from 00.01 am to 04.00 pm, maintenance work on e.g. STADS.
  • To staff in Foulum: Local network changes. Staff is informed locally.

If you have any questions, please send an email to driftstatus.it@au.dk.
