TCC's Virtual Desktop

TCC's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) allows you to log on to a Windows 10 virtual desktop from anywhere you have internet access.

This provides you with virtual access to many campus applications and programs, including:

  • Microsoft Office (such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Access)
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • NetLab

Since VDI has the resources and software you need, you don't need to download anything directly to your device to get your work done.

*NOTE* TCC VDI does not work on Mac computers.
