DSC Lab Remote Access

One of our DSC Lab Windows machines remains accessible remotely. To access it, follow these steps:

  1. Start by emailing to request access—most responses will be within 1-2 workdays (Mon–Fri).
  2. Once you've been approved, connect to the remote lab server—use your Gold Password.
  3. Finally, login to the DSC machine using the DSC credentials you were provided. If you do not see an available computer, it means that another user is currently logged in. In that case, you'll need to try again later.

Once logged in, you'll see a PDF on the machine's desktop—this contains helpful information about using the remote machine, including important reminders to save your work to a cloud account (such as Google Drive) and not on the local machine and to be sure to log out of any services you sign into while working.

If you have difficulties with any part of this process or have additional questions, please contact us at
