Remote Labs

Use this website to remotely access specialized Windows software from off-campus.

Overview

Remote Labs enables students to remotely access specialized software needed for courses from off campus. At this time, the service is limited to Windows specialized software only. ITS is looking into solutions for expanding this access to software on Macs as well.

Due to licensing issues, access to the remote labs service is restricted. Students can talk to their instructors about obtaining access. Once granted, students can use a Windows or Mac computer to access the software by following the instructions below.

Step 1. Locate an Available Lab Computer

The first step in the process is to locate an available Windows computer that has the software you need:

  1. Go to www.temple.edu/remotelablist.
  2. To find the computer that has your specialized software, click the Search tool on the upper-right portion of the screen and click the title of the software app that you need.
     
    Software search icon
  3. A list of computers that have that software installed will appear. Choose a computer that is listed as Available, and make a note of the name (e.g. TECH-L001).
