The way software applications are delivered is changing…

Historically, software applications have been installed locally on PCs in the School where the applications are taught - this lacks flexibility as you want to access these software applications from any location across campus.

Based on this feedback and to enhance the student experience, IT Services 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 the Apps Anywhere web portal will start/login automatically when you login to the PC. 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.

Several core applications will be locally installed and accessible from Start>All Programs as in previous years. These programs will be categorised below as 'Locally Installed'.

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.
