This is an ‘app store’ for accessing  many of the software programs that are available on campus...but from home!

If you are visiting the page for the first time you will need to install the Apps Anywhere client on your computer in order to use the service. For full instructions please see our help sheet below.

All software requires a connection to the Global Protect VPN. This is highlighted on the AppsAnywhere site.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing, online meetings, and many more extremely useful features for communications.

Being safe in MS Teams

Before you use MS Teams, you need to be aware of your responsibilities for keeping LSBU secure, looking after your data and ensuring that you are you safe. Always be wary of who you choose to share data with, especially using a collaborative tool which makes it easier for team and cross-team working.

Think - is your document confidential or in other ways sensitive? Is it safe to be shared in a Team or in a post?

Please take a moment to read through the ICT Security Policy for students below.
