ESC Virtual Labs

HEAD OVER TO THE CLUSTER WITHOUT LEAVING YOUR DORM ROOM

 

Many students in the colleges of Engineering and Science require access to applications that either too powerful to run on their own laptops, or licensed only to run on university-owned computers.  For that reason ESC provides many academic workspaces for Notre Dame students to use every day, from the labs and classrooms in Jordan Hall of Science to the Engineering clusters in buildings like Cushing and Fitzpatrick.

This semester ESC is providing a Virtual Desktop initiative to bring those applications to you, on your own computer, anywhere you have an internet connection.  This proof-of-concept is limited to only a handful of courses at the moment, but will hopefully expand to all technology-based courses in the future.

If you are in one of these few pilot courses, you will need to perform a bit of setup to use the technology, as outlined in the pages linked below.
