The AppsAnywhere and Cloudpaging software will be automatically installed on staff desktop@UCL computers (you may see a Windows notification confirming that the Cloudpaging Player software is successfully running).

As well as staff desktop@UCL computers, some of the applications will also be available to run on departmental managed or personal devices. The availability of applications depends on factors such as licensing restrictions, device type, operating system, and location.  

The UCL Application Store will be available to staff using desktop@UCL computers from the end of April 2024. By September 2024 the service will be made available to students.
