Connecting to TTU Resources Remotely

In anticipation of faculty and staff working from home, these methods of connecting to TTU resources are listed in order of priority.

THE BEST APPROACH is to utilize CLOUD BASED RESOURCES rather than trying to connect to a system on campus.

Please do not transfer sensitive or confidential information to personal systems or removable media. Please review Emergency Remote Work Agreement Technology Guidelines.

Prepare to Work Remotely

When you begin to work remotely

  • Sign-in to Outlook on your remote devices, just as you would in your office.
  • Sign-in to Skype for Business on your remote computer or mobile device to place and receive business calls and response group calls, just as you would in your office.
  • Make use of other web-based resources, just as you would from your office.

For advanced users: A few select resources require the remote use of your campus computer.

Resources may include:

  • Banner Admin (not Raiderlink)
  • TechShare
  • Specialized software installed on campus computers.

For connections to these systems, please utilize Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to connect to your on-campus workstation. Please disconnect when not in use.

If RDP is not an option or is unavailable, utilize VPN as a last means of connecting. Please disconnect when not in use.
