Remotely gaining access to on-campus lab computers is now possible.
CaTS offers the ability to access select labs remotely over the internet. This is accomplished by connecting to the Wright State VPN, then to a website that lists each of the computer labs available. A step-by-step walkthrough is below, as well as a list of available software in these labs. Please contact the CaTS Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org, 937-775-4827) for further assistance.

Saving Files in Remote Desktops
The remote labs, like on-campus, reset upon each log-off, meaning that anything saved to these computers is deleted upon logging out. It is recommended that you save documents to your Office 365 OneDrive or an alternate cloud storage device. You can access your Office 365 OneDrive at onedrive.wright.edu.
