The Virtual Desktop service provides remote access to many University-licensed Windows applications from anywhere and without having to obtain and install the software on your own computer. Instead, you need only install the Citrix Receiver software, which allows you to make a remote connection to applications that are running in the datacenter. Nearly all platforms are supported, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iOS, Android and others. Virtual Desktop applications are available for use from both on-campus and off-campus*.
* Some software is restricted to use only from an on-campus location due to licensing restrictions.
