Remote access for ACN/UAS users

UAS users can access their email and the UIS admin environment while working at home or away from their office.

Remote access to email

You can access your emails via webmail, which is available free to anyone with a standard web browser and internet connection and doesn't require the use of a VPN or remote access system. You can log in to it with your [CRSid]@cam.ac.uk email address and UIS Password.

Website Outlook Web App

To increase security, please ensure you sign out once you are done.

New remote access system

You can connect to the University network from home or another locations so that you can use common applications, such as Excel, PowerPoint and Word, and access University systems like CamSIS, CHRIS and CUFS.

Important note: At the end of your remote access session you must explicitly sign out to prevent subsequent sign in issues. Your PC should also be patched, up-to-date and running up-to-date anti-virus software.

Old remote access system

You can continue to use the old remote access system if you have set it up on your machine already. You can also use it to create your own VPN to connect to your office computer if you need to use any special software you've installed. Follow the appropriate instructions for your operating system:
