The Virtual Computer Lab (VCL) provides remote access to select academic software via GauchoSpace. Licensing permitting, these applications can be accessed via Remote Desktop Connection by UCSB students from any computer with a reliable Internet connection. Students can make use of software without being dependent on access to a physical lab and without having to purchase software licenses for personal computers. The VCL service is only accessible through GauchoSpace and only if instructors explicitly enable it on their course page.
Requests for VCL software follow the same deadline as our lab software: Week 9 of the quarter preceding the quarter it is required.
To create a VCL please follow the instructions as outlined here: https://help.lsit.ucsb.edu/hc/en-us/articles/202856430
