Remote Access


Trinity offers a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (or VDI) service to everyone with TU Network credentials. By logging into VDI, you can access the TU Network and a standard software suite on a virtual Windows desktop from any computer and any location. This is a great solution for those who are working from off-campus and need access to network drives, protected library resources, specialized software, etc. VDI is also compatible with mobile devices like smartphones and tablets as long as they can connect to the internet.
