The Geneseo Virtual Computer Lab is a group of virtual machines that reside on a server. Whether you are using a PC or Mac with our virtual lab, you can gain access to a Windows based computer with many of the software packages that are licensed to CIT installed on it. The Virtual Lab is intended primarily for student use. Other members of the campus community may make use of this solution but it may be limited to student centered access.
