Remote Desktop Access

CADE is proud to launch 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 both the ECE and Engman Labs

There are two options to connect to the desktops:
1) HTML5 web browser access: Just follow this link and make sure to select the “USERS” Domain and login using your CoE Windows username and password.

2) VDI client access: Install a VMware Horizon Client from VMware. There are clients for Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and of course, Windows. Once the client is installed, input the connection server as: Login (make sure to select the “USERS” Domain) using your standard CoE Windows username and password.

Once logged-in through either option, 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.

Linux Virtual Desktops are also available:
