Working Remotely

To work on files and services that are normally only available whilst on the campus network, such as our network drives and Corporate Systems suite, you will need to set up a VPN connection.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a method of extending a private network (such as the University) over a public network (such as the Internet). It enables you to send and receive data across a public network as though you were directly connected to the private network in a secure way.

Instructions on setting up the VPN client can be found here. Log in to SharePoint using your University credentials.

File Storage

Last updated on 1/13/2017 Print this page

When you login to a University PC, open Computer from the Start menu and you will have a range of drives available to you. Files saved in most of these drives are stored on the University network and are available to you on any staff or student PC that you login to. They are regularly backed up  so you can restore previous versions or retrieve files that have been accidentally deleted or overwritten. You can even access these drives from your personal computer, either over the eduroam wireless network or using a broadband connection at home.

Click on the tabs below to find out more about the different network drives, instructions on how to access the network drives and how to work remotely. There is also information about Box storage that is now available to all staff and students.
