The Systems Development Team is divided into 2 sub-teams:
The Student Systems and Data Team is a specialised team within the Academic Section that builds, supports and develops ESIS (Essex Student Information System) and related integrated student systems on behalf of the section Business Owners.
The systems relate to the lifecycle of a student record after point of Admission* (Admissions Systems are managed by the respective Admissions Teams), this includes partnership records, until Graduation.
The team acts as the liaison between Business Owners and Digital Innovation and Technology Services, with whom it works very closely with. All enhancements and development is subject to approval by ASSG (Academic Section Systems Group) or PCG (Project Co-ordination Group).
Underlying source data issues should be directed to the Business System Owner of the process impacted as the Student Records Data Team remit encompasses the technical support of the systems listed below and not the ownership of the data contained within.
The Timetabling and Room Booking Team is a specialised team within the Academic Section responsible for the creation and maintenance of the University’s central timetable, and the management of room bookings within centrally allocated spaces on the Colchester and Southend campuses.
The Timetabling and Room Booking Team works collaboratively with colleagues across academic departments and Professional Services to gather accurate teaching and room booking requirements. We manage the balance between timetabled teaching events and other events that need to take place on the University’s campuses, while optimising the utilisation of space.
For timetabling queries or teaching delivery changes, academic staff should contact their respective Departmental Timetabling Officer.
Staff can book a room for meetings, conferences or other non-teaching event using the online form. General queries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Queries should be referred to their academic department in the first instance.
Clashes and class change requests can be reported through the online timetable.
Students’ Union clubs and societies should use the online form to place a room booking request.
Individual students are able to access central teaching rooms for private study when they are available. Students can book a room for group study through their academic department, who can sponsor and submit a booking on their behalf.
To book rooms at the University of Essex for meetings, conferences and other events external organisations should contact our Event Essex team.
