New initiatives in IT Services

Start.Warwick is to be discontinued on 2 October 2017

Start.Warwick <http://start.warwick.ac.uk/> is to be discontinued on 2 October 2017. This is primarily because the new My Warwick mobile application replaces Start and will be launched in early September 2017. This change will enable us to remove legacy unsupported software.

Users visiting Start.Warwick after it's been withdrawn will see a web page which contains a description of the My Warwick app and useful links for example Student Records Online.

The new My Warwick mobile app for students is a system to bring together in one place information from many University systems. For those who would like to know more, screenshots and more information on the My Warwick app are available on the support pages.

Support for older browsers to end from 23 May 2017

From 23 May 2017 onwards, older browsers will no longer be supported by the University website, with features becoming unavailable over the coming months. This is a result of behind-the-scenes changes we need to make to ensure the safe and secure operation of the Warwick website.
