Desktop AnywhereDesktop Anywhere provides students and staff with secure remote, wireless and residence network access to University IT services in a familiar cluster-style desktop. These services include:
- Some of the most frequently used applications on the cluster desktop including Microsoft Office
- Home directory (M: drive) (and departmental shared areas (N: drive) where applicable)
- On-campus services such as departmental intranet sites and Library services
- Cluster printing
- Secure file copy from local drives to network drives (M:/N: drives)
Using Desktop Anywhere is very similar to using a computer in the clusters. You should use your M: drive to save your work and you can find software in the start menu.
