What is China Connect?
Sometimes the performance of University of Leeds teaching and learning systems is not good enough when accessed from China, and we hope that China Connect can help with this.
China Connect is a tool from the University of Leeds that you can run on your device (laptop, phone, tablet) that will boost the connection to important University of Leeds systems, including Minerva, Mediasite, Teams and University of Leeds websites.
You can find a more detailed information on what the China Connect service is, which key University systems have been whitelisted for China Connect and instructions on how to download and install the software to get connected by reading the China Connect, Leeds IT Service Desk knowledge base article.

- The University has also developed guidance to support students based in China to help manage their specific challenges.
- If you have identified a system that is needed for Learning and Teaching activities and is currently inaccessible or suffers from slow performance by staff/students based in China, staff can make a request for it to be added to the whitelist by completing the Whitelist a system for China Connect request form.
