Work remotely

If you work remotely at KTH, you can still access most of your KTH resources. On this page you will find the necessary information for working remotely.

Many of KTH's services do not require you to use the network at KTH. These services can be used if you log in to kth.se. Examples of some of these services are Self-reporting HR +, Service Management Edge and more. You will find these services in your personal menu .

If you have a KTH laptop our recommendations is that you bring it home to work on and by all means don't forgett to also bring home the charger for it.

NOTE!! Please keep in mind that all resources have their limitations.

Please check for the latest operational status if some of the remote access services and tools are not working properly: Operational status for employees
