Article SummaryMyDesktop is a VDI that allows an enrolled student or staff member to use college software without installing it on a personal computer.
This article is intended for all staff and students at all campuses.
Answer
MyDesktop is a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) that allows you to connect to a virtual computer that has college software installed. The benefit of MyDesktop is that you always have access to the software you need for your classes without installing it. MyDesktop can be accessed from different devices and different platforms (Windows, MAC, Android, iOS) from the college network or from home.

To connect to MyDesktop, go to https://mydesktop.algonquincollege.com. The simplest method is to use your web browser. There is a more fully functional and complex method using VMware Horizon View Client.

Note: To use MyDesktop off campus, you need a secure connection - How do I connect to VPN??
