Whether you're working or studying from home, you can access a host of IT resources from the comfort of your very own sofa.
Staff and students can access their University desktop from their own PC, Mac, Linux or mobile device. Connecting is quick and easy, and lets you access your filestore, and a range of applications. To keep the desktop in line with PCs in our IT classrooms and study areas, we've recently added Google Chrome to the list of available software.
The VPN provides a secure connection allowing your computer to access the University network when you are off campus. This means that you can use services including printing, filestores, restricted web applications (eg SITS), and licence servers to give you access to University licensed software. You can download a connection app, or access the VPN via the web.
The services that we offer to off-campus users include remote support (we can connect to your machine to help resolve issues), Google Apps (available wherever you are), and software for your own machine. To find out more, visit our web page:
