How to access UiO Windows resources

I want to access a UiO Windows desktop computer or terminal server

The terminal server solution Programkiosk can be used for standard office programs, as well as for access to Adobe applications.

If you want to access your desktop computer through RDP, follow the instructions here, or contact us.
