In partnership with IS&T, ETS, the School of Social Welfare and the Library, the campus-supported Citrix service has been expanded to provide access to research tools that are costly or difficult to setup on local machines. This guide answers questions about how to get started with the service and what to expect when using the tools in the virtual lab.
Citrix gives you secure access to certain UC Berkeley applications that are not installed on your computer workstation (e.g., BAIRS; Cal Planning) as well as to applications that can be used for individual projects such as Excel and SPSS. Using CITRIX eliminates compatibility and security issues that occur when running web browser versions for each application.
Install the Citrix Workspace App:
To access Citrix you will need to download and install the Citrix Workspace App. The Citrix Workspace App is a client and web browser plug-in that provides you with secure browser access to certain UC Berkeley applications from any location.
Citrix offers Windows, Mac, and Mobile app downloads directly from their website.
