Turnitin have reported that they are currently experiencing connectivity issues. They are working on resolving these, but until they do, we will experience intermittent availability of the Turnitin service.

Turnitin will be taking their services down for maintenance between 4 pm and 12 midnight on Tuesday July 10.

Users will be unable to submit and grade during this maintenance window, so please ensure that any submission deadlines are adjusted to fall outside of the window.
