It is necessary to use a VPN connection to access H:Space and U:Space and other LSE resources from off campus.
See the Guides tab at the top of this page for more information on how to create your LSE VPN connection and a shortcut on your desktop. Connect to the internet as usual using dial-up or broadband.
When you need to connect to your H:Space, U:Space, use Outlook or access the LSE address book, double click the shortcut on your desktop, enter your LSE username and password and click the Connect button.
Once connected, a new icon will appear in the system tray in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop. To access H:space and U:space, see further information on connecting your personal file storage and web pages.
To disconnect from the LSE VPN connection, right click on the new connection icon and select Disconnect. You will remain connected to the Internet through your normal connection.
Note: The VPN connection will route all of your network traffic through the LSE network unless you deselect the default gateway. If some of your other applications behave differently or your Internet connection becomes very slow, close all of your LSE files and emails, disconnect from the VPN and try your other applications again. If this resolves the problem, only connect to the VPN when working on LSE documents or mail.
