Alert – Multi-factor authentication required for myDesktop from 21 August 2021

From 21 August 2021, students and staff will be required to use multi-factor authentication (MFA) when accessing myDesktop. The login process will be the same as that already in place for Microsoft 365 applications, including Outlook Email (RMIT student and staff email). For MFA setup instructions and more information, go to Multi-factor authentication.


Logging in

Log in using your RMIT ID (the letter 's' followed by your student number) and password. Forgotten your password? Reset it via the RMIT ID and password page.


What is myDesktop?

myDesktop is an online program that allows you to:

  • Log in to your RMIT desktop and access files saved to your network drive from any internet enabled device, so you can access your work from anywhere
  • Access free software and applications, including MYOB and AutoCAD on your device
  • Print documents direct from your device using printers on campus

You can access myDesktop from any device (laptop, desktop, mobile, tablet) that has an internet connection. So no matter what device you’re using, your apps and files are always within easy reach – on campus or off.

Adobe Creative Cloud no longer available in myDesktop

Adobe Creative Cloud applications (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, etc) are no longer licensed for students in myDesktop. Students enrolled in specific RMIT programs and courses that require access to Adobe Creative Cloud will automatically receive a subscription. Find out which programs and courses are eligible for an Adobe subscription (login required).
