The end of Cardiff Portal

Cardiff Portal will no longer be available from September. Prepare yourself for the change by using the intranet as your gateway for accessing University information.

From 1 September you will not be able to access Cardiff Portal. It is being decommissioned because it can no longer be developed or fixed if something goes wrong.

The majority of services available are now available in the intranet.

Services which are not yet available (Manage my Publications and the myPrint balance) are in development, and will be published on the intranet ahead of the switch-over.

The intranet has been specifically designed to support you and make your life easier. It brings together tools, services and information so you can visit one online resource to find everything you need for your study, research, and work.

The intranet was launched to staff and students in January 2015 and has had over 750,000 page views in its first six months.

If you have not yet started to visit the intranet, why not start now?

We recommend that you save the intranet in your favourites or make it the default homepage in your browser so that it opens up automatically when you access the web.

This will ensure that you stay up to date with the latest University news as well as being able to find University information quickly.

Find out more about the intranet.
