Use IUanyWare to access IU STC labs during COVID-19

On this page:


UITS has made it possible for students, faculty, and staff to use IUanyWare to access computers in the STCs remotely during the period of online instruction and campus closures. This remote access allows you to access IU-licensed software not usually included on personal laptops or other individual devices.

For help, contact your campus Support Center.

Connect to IUanyWare

See About IUanyWare to learn how to:

Connect to an IU STC PC computer lab

  1. Go to IUanyWare and log in with your IU username and password.
  2. Choose the Desktops tab at the top of the page. You will see several icons with STC Desktop labels:
    • If you are taking courses in and require specific software for the McKinney School, Chemistry, or another department, choose the appropriate icon. Note that these labs have smaller capacity, so you might not be able to connect immediately if all of the computers are in use.
    • Everyone else should choose STC Lab Desktop. There are hundreds of computers available for remote access.

    You will automatically be logged into the computer. A small window will show your cloud storage locations connecting.

  3. Use the computer just as you would in the computer lab. UITS recommends that you use IU Cloud Storage to store and access your files.
  4. Remember to click the Log Off icon on the desktop when you are finished to allow another user to access the computer.
STC Desktops on IUanyWare do not save profile settings. You will lose any configurations when you log off.

Connect to an IU STC Mac computer lab

Currently, only students enrolled in courses that specifically require using Macs may connect to a Mac computer lab remotely. You will need a Mac computer's assigned IP address, which your instructor should give you.

To remotely connect to a Mac:

  1. Go to IUanyWare and log in with your IU username and password.
  2. You can click the link to use the light version in a browser window, or click Detect Receiver if you already have the Citrix Workspace app installed on your computer.
  3. Search for Remote Desktop to find the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection application. Open it, wait for the application to launch, type in your assigned IP address, and then click Connect.
  4. You should be presented with a certificate notice. Choose yes to proceed.
  5. Log into the computer using your IU credentials. A Remote Desktop session should start after a few moments of initialization.
  6. To disconnect, log out of the remote session computer from the Apple menu in the top left corner.
