Student Desktop Anywhere provides Maastricht University (UM) students with access to all student desktop facilities on library computers, even when you are working on a computer outside the University Library (or on your own laptop in the library).
Along with having access to the electronic library (e-journals, e-books, databases) and catalogues, you can also use your I: drive and the regular and faculty applications you need during your studies from home or anywhere in the world.
The advantage of this is that you will rarely need to install any software on your own computer, as Student Desktop Anywhere is part of the Server Based Computing concept which is used throughout the library.
You can gain access to Student Desktop Anywhere by logging in with your UM account.
The SDA user manual explains everything about this step by step.
SDA is intended for use by UM students only. For staff other options like using VPN
are usually a good alternative. More information on VPN can be found here.
