Faculty, staff and students can access much of the software available in open computer labs from home by logging into the NKU Virtual Lab. This software includes but is not limited to:

  • ArcGIS
  • Mathematica
  • Microsoft Office
  • Minitab
  • SPSS
  • Visual Studios

This service is available on Window and Macintosh computers and most mobile devices. On your own device, you can install software/apps that will "virtually" log you into a Windows machine preloaded with NKU licensed software.

Using NKU Virtual Desktop while off campus requires downloading VPN as well as VMWare software/apps onto your computer.
