Work From Home

In response to the 2019 new coronavirus, the Singapore campus of James Cook University has put in place a set of protective measures and advice to keep our students and staff healthy and safe, as well as to better mitigate risks and minimise disruption.

JCU staff working remotely or preparing to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, these are things you need to know. 

  • The Work From Home guide is the first step that will answer many questions you may have. 
  • See the VPN guide to access Campus network.
  • Steps on how to Map a Network Drive (ex: S Drive) is available here
  • Please continue to log all technical support requests via ServiceNow or by emailing the ICT Helpdesk
  • ICT staff will be reachable via Zoom and Microsoft Teams for support during this time
  • If you experience a technical issue with a JCU owned computer while working from home, please log a job via ServiceNow to request a repair.
  • Staff using personal machines will be offered support limited to simple queries only eg: logging into O365 or VPN. (Note: We will be unable to assist personal or Home Internet service issue)

Additionally heightened cyber caution is advised and expanding your awareness about confidentiality and privacy is highly recommended.

If you are working remotely you will need to be aware of the ICT Acceptable usage policy to ensure confidential/private information is accessed and managed accordingly, and University records are only stored in University-managed locations or systems e.g.: do not store University data in your personal Dropbox or your home computer.
