Get access to software for teaching & learning

Whether you need to build an interactive presentation or compile a spreadsheet, you can access in-demand software through Rowan University’s Academic Virtual Desktop to help you get the job done. 

Academic Virtual Desktop

The Academic Virtual Desktop gives you access to all of the programs you’d have in a standard computer lab on campus from your own device. In the Academic Virtual Desktop, you’ll find specialized applications, such as ArcGIS, Comsol, Mathematica and SPSS, as well as more common programs, like the Microsoft Office suite and Adobe Creative Cloud applications.

To access the Academic Virtual Desktop, make sure you have Citrix Workspace installed on your computer and then log in to with your Rowan NetID. 

Visit the IRT website for more information about the Academic Virtual Desktop.

If you currently access the Academic Virtual Desktop, employee desktops or virtual applications through any other method than logging in to, you will be unable to do so as of Friday, Sept. 23. You must log in to to access virtual desktops and applications.
