The Information Technology division launched Windows Virtual Desktop in the Spring 2021 semester. Windows Virtual Desktop enables faculty, staff, and students to access their BSU applications from anywhere at anytime, via the web. The "cloud" refers to information technology services that can be accessed via the Internet regardless of where the infrastructure is located. As BSU continues to evolve, IT offers this new service to help meet the growing needs of the BSU community and enhance student success.
What services and applications are available via Windows Virtual Desktop?
There are multiple ways to connect to Windows Virtual Desktop and the Windows Virtual Desktop service is available to all BSU students and employees. All applications currently available on the BSU image will be available to members of the BSU community. This means all software accessible from a computer located in the BSU Open Access Labs you can get to from anyplace. You can login from anyplace to use these programs with your BSU credentials.
