The Central Piedmont Cloud allows students, faculty, and staff to securely access the campus internet network, classroom software, employee tools, and other Central Piedmont-licensed applications from your personal device from anywhere you have an internet connection, whether you are on campus or off campus.

The Cloud is a virtual desktop from which you access your applications as you would were you using an on-campus device. The Cloud allows you to use your devices to teach, workcomplete school work, assignments, or tests while in class or remotely.
