UoN Timetable Fixer

What does this website do?

The University of Nottingham provides a timetable that you can import into your calendar application at mycal.nottingham.ac.uk. Unfortunately this has a bug when used with Google calendar which means every single event shows up as "busy" instead of its actual name. If you don't use Google Calendar, you probably don't need this website. Just go to mycal.nottingham.ac.uk

This website bypasses the google calendar bug by rewriting the file the university provides. It is not affiliated with the University of Nottingham in any way.

This service is provided "as is" with no express or implied warranty for accuracy or accessibility. Please refer to the official University timetabling systems for accurate information. Please report any issues with this website to me here.
