Connect to your files and software using DesktopAnywhere

What do I need to be able to use DesktopAnywhere?

DesktopAnywhere will work on most current Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS devices.

For best performance computers running Windows and Macs should install the client from the Client Options menu.

For installation details please see the connection guide.

You will only need to do this the first time you connect to the updated version of DesktopAnywhere.

The Desktop Anywhere service also works seamlessly on Apple iPads and Android tablets.

  • For full details of supported clients see the Oracle documentation
  • Support for Java and HTML5 are also available from the Client Options menu.

Dependent on your status (staff / student) within the University and your Department the exact list of software available will vary. However all will have access to either a Staff or Student Managed Desktop which will give access to all standard software installed on managed computers on campus as well as M and U drives.This prevents the problem of having different versions of documents at home and at work, and also the risk of having sensitive work documents on your home computer.

Connect to DesktopAnywhere using HTML5 - for Apple and Android tablets or if you cannot connect using the link above.
