Remote Application Service (RAS)

RAS (Remote Application Service) provides a method of using University IT facilities – software, printers, internal web pages, and your own documents – 24/7 from any Internet connection, in particular from your own computer.

The system is easy to use, works on all main operating systems and is accessed via your Web browser. We provide the vast majority of IT Service Cluster applications through RAS.

When you print a document from RAS, if the default printer connected to your computer is compatible with the system then it should be listed as the first choice.

Because RAS is running applications on the University’s servers, depending on your Internet connection speed and stability the applications on RAS may run more slowly than any applications that you have on your computer.
