  • MTU’s Cork campuses will remain closed on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th of February due to the significant IT breach and telephone outage which occurred last weekend.
  • Campuses in Kerry remain unaffected.

We are now planning for a phased and managed return to teaching and learning from Monday February 13th. This decision has been taken to allow us to follow structured and cautious procedures and protocols that must be completed in order to ensure the security of our systems.

Outdoor facilities at our Cork campuses will reopen tomorrow in order to facilitate pre-arranged, low-risk activities, such as sports training, that are beneficial for student and staff wellbeing as well as community engagement. 

We continue to engage actively with the relevant authorities including the National Cyber Security Centre and our security partners as their investigations continue. 

Our students’ education is a top priority for us and we appreciate the patience of all students, staff and stakeholders while we complete this vital work. We are currently assessing all appropriate and effective solutions to allow us to return to teaching as normal and reopen our campuses as quickly and safely as possible.

A further update will follow as soon as possible.
