Remote Desktop

Remote Desktop Services makes it possible for you to work on the University's local network no matter where you are located geographically or what type of device you are using. You are connected to the university's server but you experience it as you are working locally on your own computer.

How to Log in to Remote Desktop

These instructions are for Microsoft Windows.

  1. Open a web browser and go to http://remote.hig.se
  2. Log in with your username@hig.se (i.e. ofk12gsm@hig.se) and your password.
  3. Click "Desktops (Mac, iPad, Android, Windows)"
  4. Click "Full Desktop - Main Servers". If you are going to use CAD-program use "Full Desktop - CAD Servers" instead
  5. Click "open" when you get the question if you want to open or save "MainCollection.rdp".
  6. Click "Connect" and your computer will connect to the remote desktop.
  7. If you use another web browser than Internet Explorer you will have to log in again after you clicked on "Connect". Log in with your username@hig.se.
