LSE Network Guidance


You can connect your own computer to the LSE network in order to access your own files, network drives and even software. Below is all of our available guidance on connecting to the LSE network.

IMT recommends that you take measures to protect your computer from viruses and security threats.

You can connect to the LSE network in various ways. See the Remote Desktop and VPN for advice on these connections.

The LSE Remote Desktop allows you access to email, H: space and other network drives as well as a wide range of software including Office 2010, with minimal configuration of your computer.

You can access Remote Desktop by connecting to the Remote Access service:
