Access university software on-campus or at home
Our IT department are excited to introduce AppsAnywhere. We’ve changed the way you access university software in teaching classrooms and learning spaces.
AppsAnywhere uses a web interface for access to the University’s software applications and offers a much improved student experience.
We want to make sure software is delivered not only within teaching spaces on campus but make them available off campus too, on personally owned devices.
Take a look at our video to see how our students are using it and read our instruction guide on how to log on to AppsAnywhere for the first time.
Please note: Mac is not yet supported but our IT team are working on it
You can access AppsAnywhere on any Middlesex Windows machine including student loan laptops, AppsAnywhere will launch and run automatically as soon as you login.
You can access AppsAnywhere on your personal devices, follow the instructions below:
You can’t see certain software due to the nature of the software licencing however, we are looking to improve this feature as time goes on.
Please note: Mac is not supported yet, our IT Department will start planning for this in the near future.
AppsAnywhere does not require you to log out on student machines. On personal devices simply exit the web browser.
AppsAnywhere is based on a cloud server, not on the machine itself. This means the software does not take any space on your machine.
There is a feedback form within AppsAnywhere where you can leave your comments, ideas and suggestions.
For further enquiries please contact UniHelp.
The feedback icon will look like this:
Splashtop is remote-desktop software which gives users the ability to connect to and control specified university machines from their device.
All students (and staff) who would normally use specialist software but can’t as they are studying from home and so using their own devices.
The university uses lots of specialist software across all faculties. A lot of this software needs to be run on specialist machines, which means students and staff aren’t able to access the software when working from their own devices at home. Splashtop allows both students and staff the ability to remotely access these specialist machines on campus.
If you don't yet have an invitation to Splashtop, please read the getting set up guide.
