Remote Desktop Access

CADE is proud to offer VMware’s VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) solution for remote access to Windows 10 desktops. We have 128 desktops available for use on-campus or off with no need to use a VPN.

The pools are for both the MSE and Engman Labs

HTML5 web browser access: Just follow this link and make sure to select the “USERS” Domain and login using your CoE username and password(aka ‘CADE Account’).

Once logged-in, double-click on a pool and a desktop will launch. If, by chance the pool you choose failed (too many users, maintenance, etc.), just choose another pool.  [Note- previously, one could connect with the ‘VMware Horizon Client’ application but the service no longer functions at acceptable levels to recommend it’s use.]

Linux Virtual Desktops are also available:

Feedback, program(s) install requests for VDI, complaints or general questions should be directed to
