CampusAnywhere is a service that allows you to connect to your campus Y: Drive and restricted webpages such as Library databases which want you to log in every time you use them. This can be complicated, and repetitive, so using CampusAnywhere means you only have to log in once, and can access resources automatically – as though you were on campus.

It’s available for Internet Explorer (7, 8, 9, 10, and 11); Firefox; Mac OS X 10.7 (and higher); iOS (iPad/iPhone); Android – 4.x (Ice Cream Sandwich); and Linux. All you need is an internet connection and your RHUL username and passwords.

Sounds good? We know! Visit the IT webpages to get the right version for you.
