Remote Services Access

Remote access to internal Services

Off-Campus access to University of Reading internal services, without the use of a VPN, is available through the Office 365 Portal login screen. This means when accessing some services remotely you will enter your login details on a Microsoft branded webpage.

In order to access the services remotely you will need to set up and use the Microsoft Authenticator app (for Multi Factor Authentication). If you do not have a smart device you can complete the process using a phone call or text message from a standard phoneline.

Please see the 'Microsoft Authenticator App' section on this page for further assistance in how to do this.
