In response to the UCCS transition to remote learning, UCCS OIT has made a select number of open lab computers available for remote access. These computers will provide access to all Windows PC Software for IT LAB Images. Access to this resource will require an active VPN connection for the duration of the remote session.
In an effort to reduce VPN traffic, it is requested that you do not use this service unless you need access to software only available on open lab computers. For access to UCCS webpages, Canvas, Microsoft Office programs, and Matlab remote access is not required.
The following requirements are necessary for remote access to open lab computers.
In order to ensure that everyone has a computer available for remote access, please follow the procedure below when reserving a computer.
You must remain connected to the UCCS VPN for the duration of your remote desktop session.
Enter your UCCS credentials to sign-in and reserve a computer.
Click Connect to initiate the remote desktop connection.
Make sure to use the format email@example.com.
This will make the lab computer you were connected to available for use by other students.
