If you have an SGUL managed laptop; nothing changes. VPN will continue to provide the access you require.
If you do not have a St George's managed laptop; the best option is Mydesktop which is reached at MyDesktop. This is a remote Windows desktop that functions just like a St George's PC. It has most, if not all, of the commonly used applications at SGUL. If a specialist application is missing, ITAV can accept requests to add that to appsanywhere and make available if appropriate.
Appsanywhere is an app store-style platform that gives you access to software via the below icon link on your laptop.
Should access be required to specialist applications, installed on specific St George's, University of London devices, users should contact ITAV@sgul.ac.uk who can arrange to assess the viability of remote access.
SITS is installed on the MyDesktop Remote Desktop Service. You can find further instructions for connecting to and working with SITS on MyDesktop here.
Transfer of files
If, for some reason, you need to transfer files to and from the St George's desktop and your home PC, OneDrive can be used (subject to you following GDPR/DPA good practice).
The OneDrive application is available by default on Mydesktop.
OneDrive is also accessible from any PC worldwide.
Video Conferencing, Chat, file sharing etc is available to all through Microsoft Teams. Users can create their own teams and invite others to work collaboratively.
Access Teams and sign in with your St George's email address and password.
Guidance on the use of Teams can be found on these pages or contact the SGUL Learning Technology Services Team
Skype for Business can also be used, but Teams is the preferred method.
