The campus will continue to work closely with Boulder County Public Health as it considers public health requirements in the Boulder community. For more details view the Pandemic Response Office update.

VDI Labs

As we move back to in-person learning, remote access to OIT labs will continue to be offered but in a reduced capacity. A subset of machines in each centrally funded/scheduled lab will be available for students to access remotely after-hours and on weekends. Access will be granted on a request basis. More details on the process to request remote access.
