I am a Student, can I connect to AXIUM, from my laptop, tablet, smart phone or from home?

Yes, but with some restrictions. 

Remember you must do your part and uphold patient privacy at all times and ensure your device is password/passcode protected.

In order to access programs like AxiUm from your device, or your home computer, we have provided a tools called "remoteAPP" for PC's and  "Microsoft Remote Desktop" for MAC's.

NOTE: The MAC app "Microsoft Remote Desktop" DOES NOT allow students to have a "Desktop" but rather will show all the applications you need like Axium, Word and Excel.  You can also access all your files. So the name of the app is a bit misleading.

System Requirements:

  • Windows computer running Vista or later, or
  • Macintosh computer running OS X 10.9 or later, an iPhone or iPad, with the App "Microsoft Remote Desktop" version 8.0 installed - available from the Mac App Store - free of charge
  • High speed internet connection
  • Dentistry computer account (the account you use to log into the Faculty computers)

Please be aware that:

  • Your remote connection will automatically log off after 5 minutes of inactivity
  • The maximum session time is 2 hours

Please see these two guides for setting up remote apps on your personal computer:
