Remote Access to Campus Computers

What is Remote Access?

Remote Access allows Hunter students to remotely access on-campus lab computers from their own devices. Users can access Windows, Mac and Linux computers from any Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Chromebook device.  Once connected, they’ll see the screen of the remote computer on their own device and be able to use any application or file as if they were sitting in front of it.

Please note: Software will not work if connected to VPN service and a Hunter NetID is required to use the software.
