My desktop

Last changed: 22 November 2023

By connecting to the "My Desktop" service, you get access to SLU's standard applications and the documents and files that you have stored on a SLU computer.

My desktop can be used both from SLU's network and from home on your own computer, tablet or phone. All you need is a browser and internet connection.

  • Through the service, all students from all kind of devices can access the applications that are also in SLU's computer rooms.
  • You can access your home directory and all files that you have stored on SLU's storage.
  • You have the opportunity to use more resource-intensive programs, such as statistics programs.
  • You do not have to download and install programs on your local computer, you can run them directly through the service instead.
