Accessing University services on your personal Windows device (Staff)

The guidance on this page applies to University staff who wish to use their personal, or unmanaged Windows device for work purposes.

As a member of staff, you will need to install the Microsoft Intune Company Portal to access University services on your Windows device. The Company Portal will grant you access to University services so long as your device meets certain criteria, as set out in the guidance for Personal Devices. It is important to review this guidance before continuing through the steps below

Installation of the Company Portal on your personal device will not grant Microsoft or the University access to any of your personal information held on your device.

Where possible, we highly recommend using a University provided computer or device to access services. This will have the necessary security controls in place to support your working.

Before you register:

  1. Make sure that you are using a personal or unmanaged Windows computer. You can do this by pressing the following combination on your keyboard: ‘CTRL + ALT + I’. If your device information is displayed, then you are using a University managed computer and should not proceed with the next steps. If your device is not working as intended, please contact the SIZ on
  2. You will need to be running the latest version of Microsoft Windows 10 or 11 on your device with the latest security patches installed. You can review the University requirements for updates here: Please visit the Microsoft guidance here on how to keep Windows up to date:
