Satellite Labs

To provide easier access to specialized software packages, we have several satellite labs on campus, which consist primarily of "thin clients." These thin machines use less power and last longer, so are more sustainable. From them, you can 

  • Quickly view web-based content
  • Connect to "terminal server" computers, which allow you to 
    • Print PDFs, documents, presentations and spreadsheets 
    • Use specialized software programs
