There is no charge for use of this service.

The Research Remote Desktop Service (RRDS) provides a Windows virtual desktop environment through which users can remotely access research data (Level 1, 2, and 3) and pre-installed analysis software. RRDS offers various statistical software and can be accessed from both on-campus and off-campus using a VPN connection. Users are required to have a working HawkID and Duo set up to log in and use the service. HealthcareIDs are not able to access the service at this time.  Please see the How to and Support tab for more information about RRDS.

Important: If you previously had access to the old implementation of RRDS, you automatically have access to the new RRDS server and don't need to submit the workflow form. Please contact research-computing@uiowa.edu if you have trouble logging in.
