What is Apporto?
Try LabStats first! Use Apporto if your device doesn’t support RDP (e.g., smartphones, tablets, etc.) or if no computers are available via LabStats.
Apporto allows you to stream a virtual computer through your web browser to any internet-enabled device. The virtual computers have been configured as closely as possible to our physical lab machines, and thus you will have access to most of the software typically available.
Accessible computers are broken up by Operating System:
Connect to a virtual lab computer
- Navigate to our Apporto remote access page
- Click Log in
- If prompted, sign in with your College email and password
- Username: quaker\username
