Using Apps Anywhere to connect to campus applications

Introduction

What is Apps Anywhere?

AppsAnywhere is a program that allows you to access campus software from your personal computer without having the applications installed on your device.

*This application is shared with students, faculty, and staff, so please log off the application when you no longer need it. This will free up the resource for someone else.*
