ICT Communications update

mobilEcho – Access Files on the Move


Our ICT department has introduced an app, called mobilEcho, that allows staff and students to connect securely to their ‘home’ directory (H drive) and SharePoint using mobile devices such as phones and tablets, both on and off campus. The software is free to use, and supported on both Android and Apple devices.

Find out more about MobilEcho. Queries can be directed to Michael Lynn by email.

Improving wireless access across NHS sites


For academics, wireless eduroam access has now been expanded to cover all five main NHS Trust Hospital sites. The roaming service allows staff from participating institutions to use their ‘’ email addresses to gain wireless access to the Imperial College network, and to networks at other participating institution’s sites. For more details on eduroam see

A new wireless system (ICHT-Green) is also now available (from 30th September) offering excellent coverage across Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte’s Hospital buildings for all staff using Trust-owned, Windows-based laptops (not tablets or mobile phones).

This work is part of the Trust’s commitment to support and enhance the experiences of Imperial College and other academics across all Hospital sites.
