Install or use Software

There are many specialized software packages used by different academic disciplines at Colorado College. 

While you are on campus and connected VIA Ethernet or Tigernet2 you can use a Remote Desktop Program (RDP) to log into these servers (If you are off campus you can follow the instructions on the SSLVPN webpage). Windows Computers have a RDP program installed by default and if you're using a Mac, you should download and use CoRD.  

Those servers are:

IT-Termsrv1.coloradococollege.edu
IT-Termsrv5.coloradococollege.edu
SAS.coloradococollege.edu


As an example, this is how you can access the SAS terminal server: 

On a Windows computer:

  • Open Remote Desktop Connection (usually in Start Menu > Accessories)
  • type "SAS.coloradocollege.edu" into the "Computer:" field
  • Click Connect
  • Enter your Colorado College username and password
  • Make sure to log off the machine when done (Start menu > Log off)

On a Mac:

  • Download and install CoRD or Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection
  • Open CoRD or Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection
  • type "SAS.coloradocollege.edu" into the "Computer:" field
  • Click Connect
  • Enter your Colorado College username and password
  • Make sure to log off the machine when done (Start menu > Log off)
