There was an issue logging into the Student App this morning. The service should now be restored, however you might need to log out and log back in to fully restore functionality.
Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Recently IT&IS have become aware of the targeting of Goldsmiths for scam emails to steal money from staff.
Typically the subject is something like “Are you on campus” or “Are you available” and come from an internet address similar to a senior colleague i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org instead of J.Smith@gold.ac.uk.
– Initially they ask if you are available to start the engagement;
– The scammer has an urgent request and can’t be contacted by phone;
– They request you to purchase physical gift cards such as iTunes/Amazon on their behalf worth hundreds of pounds.
If you receive a scam email similar to the above, forward the email to email@example.com so IT can block the email and then delete the email.
As a general rule do not reply to any email from a staff member other than emails from a gold.ac.uk email address.

The engineers are still working to resolve the issue.
There is, however, a workaround for staff who are on campus. This will not work for staff working remotely from home.
