Remote Access: Working Off-Campus

Following developments with the coronavirus situation many members of staff are now working remotely. This means we have adapted our systems to cope with the increased demand. We are now requesting that you avoid using remote.lse.ac.uk and instead use the following links to access the H Space, shared drives and business and teaching applications.
