UMBC's Virtual Desktop Environment allows users to access a virtual lab or staff workstation anywhere there is an internet connection. Depending on affiliation and selection, a user can access virtual desktop, just like they were sitting at a workstation on campus.
You can establish a connection to a virtual desktop through your web browser, or by installing the VMWare Horizon View Client on your PC (which we recommend for optimal performance). Please see the FAQ articles below for guidance on how to connect to VDE.
The Virtual Desktop environment is available 24/7, and can support up to 100 simultaneous users.
