Remote Computer Labs for Students
Students: Instructors may specify you use a remote computer lab to access specialty software.
Connecting to a remote computer lab
Using a computer in the remote computer lab
When you launch an application on a remote computer, you may need to sign in with your Marquette email address and password to activate the software. Also, follow the prompts for any first-time setup of software. If you use the remote computer's web browser, note that the remote computer acts as if you were off-campus. Use the web browser on your own computer to reach campus-restricted resources with VPN.
- If you leave the remote computer idle for more than one hour, your session will be disconnected.
- After two hours of inactivity, your remote computer session will be automatically logged out.
Important Notice: Don't lose your files
Save your work to OneDrive for Business
Saving files to the remote computer is temporary. If you leave files on the remote computer, you will lose them. Please remember to save all work to OneDrive prior to disconnecting from your remote computer lab session.
About Mobile Apps

Sign out when done
When you are finished using the remote computer, go to the Windows start menu of the remote computer, click or tap the power icon then select Disconnect.
