Get Started with RemoteApp

Brown's RemoteApp service allows members of the Brown community to access applications virtually without having to fully install them on the computer. 

Reasons to use RemoteApp include:

  • You have a Mac and want to use software that can only be installed on Windows
  • You're a student and need to use specialized software not available for student download
  • You need to use a piece of software very occasionally and don't want to install it
