Working from any location with your own device
You can access your email, calendar, files and software from your own device as if you were using a campus computer from anywhere with an internet connection.

Use UniApps to access University software
UniApps lets students and staff access their files, use a range of University-licensed software and send items to print on campus from their own computer, smartphone or tablet anywhere with internet access. All software is listed in the start menu. Using our guides to accessing it you can:
- download the Microsoft Desktop app on any device to access software through the app
- log in online to access UniApps via your web browser
- connect to UniApps via the control panel in Windows 10 and access software from your Start Menu
Use UniDesk (students) or AdminDesk (staff) to access your University desktop
While UniApps lets you integrate your University apps and files with your home device, you may prefer to access your University desktop on your computer as if you were using a computer on campus. Both AdminDesk and UniDesk can be accessed by clicking on the UniDesk or AdminDesk icon in the UniApps webpage or Microsoft Desktop App.
Accessing your work computer remotely
We recommend that members of staff use AdminDesk to access files and software.
If you need to access your own work computer, you can use Remote Desktop. You must contact the IT Service Desk in advance to set this up.
We will then contact you with all the information you need to access your computer remotely.
