Memo from UBC Psychiatry IT: Connecting to Your Office Computer From Elsewhere


If you are a Department member who has a Psychiatry IT-supported Windows computer on the Psychiatry wired network, did you know you connect to it from many other locations, and work on it as if you are sitting in front of it?  It is possible to connect to Psychiatry IT-supported Windows computers from other computers on UBC networks, including UBC Wireless, home computers and other locations.

Note: Remote connection to UBC computers from hospital computers may not be possible due to hospital network security restrictions.

Preparation at the office

  1. Request approval for remote access to your office computer from your supervisor.
  2. When in your office, note your computer’s asset number from its label, and contact with your:
    • Computer asset number
    • Logon account name
  3. Leave your office computer running.

Psychiatry IT will set it up and provide you with further instructions.
