Use your new Student Virtual Desktop!

You can use your own device to login to a Student Virtual Desktop and use nearly all of the applications found on Green River open lab computers!   
·         It works anywhere you have an internet connection.
·         Student Virtual Desktop can be used on a PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
·         A Student Virtual Desktop provides access to the student H, S & T network drives.
·         Note: you must first create a password on a campus computer before you can login to Student Virtual Desktop.

STEP 1: To access one of these desktops from your own device, go to

STEP 2: Login and launch the "Student Desktop" icon.

STEP 3: To set up Student Virtual Desktop for the first time on your device, you will automatically be prompted to install vWorkspace Connector’ software to enable launching a virtual desktop.  Follow the prompts to install the software.

STEP 4:  login with your username (student ID Number) and the password that you created this quarter for the Green River open lab computers. 
Special instructions for Mac users: To properly install the client software, Mac users will need to launch the downloaded “*.dmg” file, then hold down the “CTRL” key while selecting the “Web Access Connector” option, and click on “Open”, then follow the rest of the prompts to complete the installation.

IMPORTANT:  Do not try to save documents or other work on the virtual desktop.  Instead, save your work to your student “H” drive (Access it from:  Start Menu/Computer) or you can save to a USB drive.
Do not use the “Sync” option in OneDrive.  Each login to a Student Virtual Desktop is temporary, and anything you add is destroyed as soon as you log off or get disconnected.
