AppsAnywhere is an ‘app store’ for accessing software on University computers. The applications are streamed on-demand, rather than being installed on individual computers. The majority of applications on AppsAnywhere are available on any PC, anywhere on campus.

How do I access AppsAnywhere?

To access AppsAnywhere and see the software available:

How do I use AppsAnywhere?

  1. On a university PC go to the desktop and click on the AppsAnywhere icon
  2. AppsAnywhere will load and validate your account in order to present the applications available to you. (Students on certain courses will be able to access specialist software on a restricted licence).
  3. A green banner will appear at the top of the page once validation is complete.
  4. You can then use the search box at the top right of the page to find the software you want to use. Each application has a title, a vendor and a description. These are all searchable; for example you can search for ‘Adobe’ to find all of the available Adobe products, or search for ‘video’ if you’d like to see all the apps that might help you edit a video file.
  5. Once you have found your app, simply click ‘Launch.’ This will then open the software

Most software will provide links to its own instructions and learning resources, however you can find more support at Hallam Digital Skills
