UniDesktop for Students


Unidesktop logo

Unidesktop is a service that enables you to use a range of University software on your own desktop, laptop or tablet device either while you are away from the University, or using the wireless network on campus.

The majority of software is provided using a ‘virtual desktop environment’ that mirrors (as much as our software licensing allows) what you would normally have access to in the Library and School computer labs.

A small range of commonly used software is also available as individual applications.
