Question How to find out where else I'm logged in

On my University network, is there a way of finding out which other terminals I'm logged into, and logging them out remotely (if that's possible)?

If by other terminals you mean dumb wyses (or similar) things to one server ... could be
done. If you're talking about sessions from varied machines to different servers ...
only with difficulty

$ who | grep [your userID]
will show you what TTY's you happen to be logged into on the server you happen to be currnetly connected to.

If you are asking if you can query all of the campus servers to see if you are logged in ... that is more difficult
