SharePoint 2013 closing permanently in April

Microsoft will be withdrawing support for SharePoint 2013 (on-premise) in April 2023, in particular this impacts security updates which will also cease. Following Microsoft’s withdrawal of support, this service will no longer be available for use at Oxford University.    

We are now in the final stages of closing the service (including My Sites/OneDrive on-premise). Access for all users will be removed on 11 April 2023 and SharePoint 2013 will permanently close - extensions will not be available.    

By now you should be in the final stages of winding down your use of SharePoint 2013, including closing site collections and moving content to the SharePoint Online service in Nexus365. Please ensure that this work is completed before 11 April 2023

The closure impacts all stakeholders and users of the current SharePoint 2013 on-premise service across all University units, colleges and departments who have not yet moved their content to a new location such as SharePoint Online.
