The University of Windsor was recently subject to a cybersecurity incident, which affected our IT systems.  

Once we became aware of the incident, we immediately took steps to secure our systems and mitigate the impact to data and operations. A team of leading external cybersecurity experts was engaged to conduct a full investigation. This incident has affected some of our systems, including the UWindsor website, Blackboard, UWin Student site and other University systems, which are temporarily unavailable.  

We are working with staff to ensure they can continue operations, and with faculty and students to ensure they are able to complete course work and exams. FAQs for Students, Faculty and Staff are available.

The investigation is ongoing and is our highest priority.

We are committed to data safety and are taking this matter very seriously. We are using industry-standard security measures to ensure that our information systems and data are secured.
