About NKU Virtual Desktops and VMware View

NKU offers a convenient solution for accessing NKU software and drives wherever you are from any device - a virtual desktop.  These virtual desktops also allow for use of Windows software on Windows machines, Macs, and mobile devices.  All faculty, staff, and students can access the virtual desktops.

NKU Virtual Desktops use the program VMware View.  Users can either launch VMware View in their browser, or download the software on their device (recommended).  Both options will require users to log in with their NKU username and password.  After logging in, a window will open that contains all the software and access to network drives.

For instructions on how to access or download VMware, return to the Virtual Desktop category page.
 

Note: Remember that you are accessing an NKU virtual desktop, not your personal workstation.  All files not saved using cloud storage (e.g. OneDrive) or to the J: or K: drives will be lost when you disconnect.
