DSC Lab Remote Access

You can now access our DSC Lab Windows machines remotely. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Start by requesting remote access to the lab—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 an available DSC Lab machine using the DSC credentials you were provided.

You'll see a PDF on the machine's desktop—this contains helpful information about using the remote machines, 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
