Virtual Lab

Virtual Computer Labs Powered by Azure Virtual Desktop

We offer a virtual computer lab environment that closely mirrors our physical computer labs. If you need to access software but can’t make it to a campus lab, our virtual labs offer a convenient alternative powered by Microsoft’s Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD).
