Google Hangouts Meet
Chat, video call, and join meetings from the Meet app or on your desktop.
Upload, store, and share an unlimited amount of documents, spreadsheets, and files. You can access Google Drive from anywhere, so storing and sharing files is a breeze.
You can use vLab, our virtual lab environment, to access computer lab software from anywhere.
A number of software packages are available to download free of charge in the MyDownloads section of your MyGS portal. In addition to our typical offerings, we have been able to extend licensing for some software packages as part of the COVID-19 response.
ITS offers many resources to support virtual learning, teaching, and working. In addition to our Virtual Resources, we have begun collecting information regarding internet connectivity resources for those who may not have internet access.
Remote Access for Campus Computer Labs
Our remote lab access tool allows you to use campus computer labs from any location. Unlike our virtual lab environment, remote labs allow you to use campus hardware in order to run programs that have limited licensing or which require significant computing resources.
In the event of an emergency or crisis, the Eagle Alert warning system keeps the University community informed with alert notifications.
For students who do not have access to a computer, the University Libraries and Liberty Center have established some resources to help students access computer labs.
