Improvements made to SVE

The Southampton Virtual Environment (SVE) has been upgraded to provide an improved service which offers both increased performance and greater capacity.

SVE gives you access to your University Windows desktop from any device in any location, whether that's at home, on campus or on the move. You will also have access to all of your files plus the most popular applications.

If you are already using SVE, you may need to use a new URL or install a new app on your device. Further Information and guidance regarding SVE can be found here.

SVE offers two virtual portals to support your role at the university based upon the standard Windows 10 build:
1. Express, a minimal version with a fast start up offering the standard Microsoft Office tools
2. Student, offers all the scripted software that was previously available

If you have any problems accessing or using the new service then please contact ServiceLine.

General comments about the service can be submitted through the feedback form for the team to review.

If you require additional software to be installed please make your request here.
