Getting Started

CPCC ITS offers Citrix as our remote access offering for both students and employees.

  • Virtual Application – is a hosted application service which provides direct access to CPCC licensed applications from anywhere on all popular platforms with the need to log into a computer.
  • Virtual Desktop – is a hosted computer environment which provides access to CPCC resources from anywhere on all popular platforms.

It is strongly recommended that you use the Citrix Receiver Stand-alone Application, as the virtual desktop may not have all of the available features. You can download it for your device using the links provided below:


If you cannot use the Citrix Receiver application, you can use the HTML5 web-based interface. This option is not as powerful and lacks some features of the Citrix Receiver. If you have to use the web-based interface, we strongly recommend using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox when using CPCC Cloud as they offer full HTML5 support. Please use this link to access the web-based CPCC Cloud environment.
