Remote access to software

In partnership with IST (Information Systems & Technology), the Arts Computing Office offers remote access to applications used in some courses. Remote access allows a student to run a piece of software without installing it locally on their computer or working in a computer lab. Access is restricted to students registered in courses that are set up to use remote access to software.

    As an alternative to using browser-based access to remote applications, you can run Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which is part of the Windows operating system, and a downloadable application for Mac, to run the software.
