What is the Virtual Computer Lab (VCL)?
The Virtual Computer Lab (VCL) provides access to academic software through a web browser and an Internet connection. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the VCL is a revolutionary way to provide NYU students with access to the software they need.
Who can use the VCL?
The VCL is open to all degree-seeking NYU students with active NYU email accounts. Students can access the VCL from the Academics tab of NYUHome or by directing their browser to vcl.nyu.edu. (See also: How do I know if I am eligible to use the VCL?)
When is the VCL available?
The VCL is available whenever and wherever NYU students connect to the Internet. Eligible students — those with active NYU email accounts — simply need an Internet-connected device with the appropriate Citrix plug-in or receiver to access academic software. (Learn more about installing the Citrix plug-in or receiver on the Getting Started page.)
