You can access the light version of Student Desktop from any location where you can connect to the internet, however this version does not provide all the features you would get from installing the Citrix Receiver. Once you install the Receiver, you will no longer get the option to run the light version.

  1. In your web browser go to and log in with your student username and password:

    The login screen for Student Desktop
  2. Run the light version by clicking the correct link, depending on the web browser you are using:
    • Chrome – click Use light version
    • Other browsers – click Log on

    Select the correct link for running the light version of Student Desktop
  3. If the Student Desktop does not launch straight away in another window or tab:
    • Allow pop-ups in your browser using the options at the top of the window (this is slightly different in each browser)
    • Click OK in the browser window, or return to

How well Student Desktop runs will depend on the performance of your device and your connection to the internet.
