Remote Access (Azure Virtual Desktop -- for use on a restricted network only)

What Is It?

The virtual desktop service, powered by Microsoft’s Azure Virtual Desktop, provides access to UTHSC resources for full-time faculty and staff members working on restricted networks that do not allow direct web access. The service provides the following functionality:

  • General web access
  • Access to MS365/Office 365, including UTHSC email
  • Standalone Microsoft Office apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.)
  • Ability to save files to your MS365/Office 365 OneDrive or SharePoint

Virtual Desktop features the same security as that which protects the UTHSC network, ensuring a safe computing experience.

The service does not allow/support the following:

  • Printing
  • Saving documents directly to a computer hard drive
  • Web/videoconferencing

Who Is Eligible to Use It?

Full-time UTHSC faculty and staff practicing at Methodist Le Bonheur Hospital. Others may be considered on a case-by-case basis based on availability. (NOTE: The service will expand to be used at other facilities in the future.)
