Virtual Sites

The platform that delivers Virtual Sites has been upgraded and access policies have changed. If your affiliation is Michigan Medicine, alumni, retiree, temporary staff or sponsored affiliate, your access will be impacted. Legacy Virtual Sites will be retired November 30, 2022.

Virtual Sites is a tool that allows students,  faculty, and staff remote access to the Campus Computing Sites catalog of Windows software virtually from any device. This provides on-the-go access to a broad range of licensed Windows software. 

Virtual Sites can be accessed from any stable internet connection, remotely connecting you to a Windows environment with access to most of the software titles provided on physical Campus Computing Sites Windows workstations. You can choose to run individual software applications in a web browser, or you can open a full Windows desktop and access applications from the Windows Start menu.
