Information Technology Services: Remote Access - Remote Desktop and VPN
Our aim is to provide access to all the information resources that are available on campus to those who choose to work remotely. Remote Access is provided through our Remote Desktop service and VPN (Virtual Private Networking).
Remote Desktop is available to all staff and students whereas VPN is only available to staff and is recommended only when Remote Desktop is not sufficient. Remote Desktop is best for staff and students who require simple, fast access to a standard environment and is the preferred method of connection. This environment appears exactly as it does on a thin-client terminal on campus.
Remote Desktop (recommended)
