Apps Anywhere

The way software applications are delivered has changed…

Historically, software applications have been installed locally on PCs - this lacks flexibility as you want to access these software applications from any location across campus. Based on this feedback and to enhance your experience, we have launched a service called “Apps Anywhere”. With this service the software applications are delivered to PCs on demand through a web portal, thus allowing you to use all software applications on any PC around campus.

All student PCs (PC Classrooms, Teaching PCs and Open Access PCs) have been rebuilt and have an Apps Anywhere link on the taskbar. The web portal will present a list of software applications for on-demand delivery. Software applications are listed alphabetically, categorised by School/subject discipline and you can create bespoke favourite lists.

To run the application, simply click the “launch” button and get started.

For staff you can access apps anywhere from the following link AppsAnywhere. You can also access certain applications (licence permitting) on personal devices. See instructions for Windows and Mac below.

Several core applications will be locally installed and accessible from Start>All Programs as in previous years.

We trust this service will be greatly beneficial to you during your time at the University and look forward to hearing your feedback during the year.
