The iSchool's Remote Lab is a "virtual" computer lab that allows iSchool students and faculty to remotely access a lab computer from their home, dorm room or anywhere with a stable broadband internet connection.


The browser-based connection method is still being tested/evaluated and there are known issues which can cause connection problems. It is recommended that you use the RDP client connection for the most consistent and performant experience: Connect via RDP Client

Important Considerations

  • Save your work to your network (H:\) drive

    • Just like our physical labs, any files saved to the local hard drives will be removed.

  • Save your work often

    • Although we consider the Remote Lab platform to be stable, working remotely brings many factors into play, such as unexpected network outages, ISP issues or problems with your home network or personal devices. Saving often will help avoid losing your hard work and valuable time.

  • Please be aware: Idle sessions will automatically be logged out after 2 hours.
