We use a Virtual Desktop and Applications environment to access applications needed during your exercise hours, study or work @UNIBZ. You have access to a Windows 10 environment with several applications you will be needing to accomplish assignments and tasks.
To access the Virtual Desktop and Applications:
You can borrow a notebook for the day in our Library, just go to the info desk with your Student Card and ask for one. The notebook must be given back at the end of the day.
Keep in mind, the notebooks will only work inside our Campus where there is Wi-Fi coverage.
The notebooks can be borrowed anytime during the normal opening hours of the Library: Mon.-Fri. 8am-7pm, Sat. 9am-5pm.
