Remote Desktop

Remote Desktop allows a UWSP faculty or staff member to connect securely to their office computer while at home or at another location and work as though they were sitting in their office.  Currently, a secure remote desktop connection is only available for UWSP Windows based computers.  A secure connection for Macintosh computers is not yet available. 

When you connect to your office computer from home, your office computer will lock, so no one else can access your applications and files while you are physically out of your office. When you come back to your computer at work, you can unlock it by pressing the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys.

Below are instructions to connect to your UWSP Office PC from another computer. 

Before you can use remote desktop you may need to wake up your office computer.  To do this visit
