You can access the RRU network remotely from anywhere off campus that has an internet connection using our Terminal Services via Sentinel (formerly Gabriel).

  1. In Windows, click on Start Button
  2. Select All Apps → Windows Accessories → Remote Desktop
  3. Enter Sentinel.royalroads.ca in computer name field and press Connect
  4.  A screen will pop up showing a username and password field.  Please make sure that the username is either your RRU username or Instructional\RRU Username.  If it is anything else, then click on the Use Another Account button and enter the proper RRU credentials (Instructional\username and RRU password)

Once you are on the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC), you have direct access to almost all that you would normally have access to while sitting at a computer on campus. Please see this article for a complete list of resources available
