Citrix Web

Villanova University is pleased to offer access to over 65 software applications.  We call them the Academic Applications. To name just a few, there are popular software products like ArcView (Geography) and Maple (Math), as well as Microsoft Office, Project and Visio.

We also offer access to the statistical products used in many classes: Spss, Sas, Minitab and SigmaPlot. These products and many more are available via your web browser by connecting to the Villanova Citrix system — all day, every day. With the proper Citrix web client software, the academic applications are accessible from the dorm room, from the computer lab and from the classroom, and even if you are connecting from off campus!
