FAQs

How do I access course software off campus?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions for on campus access and for those courses that are being virtually delivered,  IT Services has configured Remote Access Computer Labs.  This will enable the access to software that is not accessible off campus due to licensing agreement restrictions.

To access a Remote Computer Lab, select the "Remote Access Computer Lab" app, which is located on the myLoyalist portal.

You will be presented with a ConnectWise Control login screen.

Click on "Connect with myLoyalist" 

Once logged in, select a computer lab, a computer, then Join. 

NOTE: Animation labs are for use by Animation students only.

You are now “virtually” sitting in front of a computer within an on campus computer lab.

Login to the computer as normal.  Go to myLoyalist, Apps2U to access software.

Frequently asked Questions
