Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provides access to a wide variety of software without ever having to set foot on campus.

Students may request to check out a hotspot for improved Internet connection by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like the opportunity to bring a mobile or laptop device to access campus wifi, we are making that option available. Those wishing to do so may park in West Campus Parking LOT 4-D, East Campus Parking LOT 1-A, East Campus Parking LOT 1-B (see map showing the wifi strength in purple and orange). In order to participate, you must remain in your personal vehicle to observe social distancing.
Campus Security will be monitoring the campus and will be asking students to stay in their vehicles and not sit on campus property (refrain from using picnic tables, seating areas or grouping). Please understand this is to comply with social distancing orders from Public Health officials.
