VirtualApps is an application virtualisation platform that allows you to access University applications and your personal / shared network drives from any device, in any location, at any time.
From the 14th December 2020, Multi-Factor Authentication will be required when accessing VirtualApps from off campus.
Further information on Multi-factor authentication including steps for enrolling your device is now available.
The applications and data remain in the University’s data centres. As such, the virtual applications and desktops are “streamed” to your device, giving you the illusion, they are installed and running on your local device.
This is a secure way of accessing University systems from any device. The only requirement is a supported device connected to the internet.
Current supported devices are:
Note: support requests for unsupported devices can only be dealt with on a best effort basis.
IDS is focused on publishing applications to VirtualApps that are required for teaching, research and other core university applications at this time.
If you would like to request an application that fits into one of these categories and is not currently listed in the VirtualApps application catalogue below, please log a request via the IDS Service Desk and include any license information.
Note: Not all applications are compatible with the VirtualApps environment.
