vDesktop is UNIT's virtual desktop technology that provides access to a high performing virtual machine through a variety of devices.  vDesktop allows users to access OS and various software applications virtually via any computer with an internet connection.  

vDesktop utilizes virtualization technologies that optimizes the delivery of desktops, applications and data to users. The operating system, apps, and data are streamed directly from the data center. This allows for the delivery of Windows desktops and apps customized to meet the performance, security and mobility requirements of individual use cases. vDesktop allows access to the Windows OS and applications from a wide variety of devices and platforms. This technology leverages Citrix’s ICA and HDX technology to insure a high quality user experience. 

Citrix Workspace App works to establish these connections and we strongly recommend downloading and installing Receiver prior to using vDesktop. To download, please go to the Citrix Workspace App website.

wireless printing

Wifi Printing is currently NOT supported in the Residence Hall.  Unit recommends students connect with bluetooth enabled devices. 


Internet Ready/SMART TV and Gaming devices, such as Apple TV, Roku, XBOX and others may have limited functionality with our network configurations.

Many students on campus may wish to connect to a VPrint printer using their own laptop. This is an option, however a print driver will have to be installed on the laptop. Visit this page for instructions.
