UNT Online Computer Lab for Students and Instructors

The University of North Texas (Denton and Frisco Campuses) offers online computer lab services to all instructors and currently enrolled students. All of the software applications needed by students to complete their coursework are available through our online computer labs: Windows and Mac. Barring maintenance windows for updates, these services are provided 24/7 during an active semester.

UNT Online Computer Labs

The primary online lab solution for Windows desktops and streamed applications is Citrix Workspace. The vast majority of Windows software used in classes taught at UNT will be found here. From within Citrix, you can access a full Windows desktop, or if you are working on a laptop or other personal device you can stream the applications directly to that device. The solution for Mac desktops is Guacamole, an open-source project developed and maintained by the Apache Software Foundation.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): The online lab solutions require the use of Multi-Factor Authentication in order to gain access. You can find the information you need to enroll in UNT’s MFA, which uses DUO, provided here.

Citrix Workspace is a universal software client that provides secure, high-performance delivery of virtual desktops and applications. Clients are available for all major operating systems and accessible using any modern browser that supports HTML5.
