Virtual Sites

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.


  • Active U-M Student, Faculty, or Staff Affiliation
    Anyone with an active U-M student, faculty, or staff affiliation is eligible to use Virtual Sites (does not include Michigan Medicine). Non-active individuals, temporary staff, sponsored affiliates, alumni, and retirees are not eligible to use Virtual Sites. Note that campus affiliation (Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Flint) may impact the availability of applications.
  • DUO Two-Factor Authentication
    Virtual Sites users must use DUO Two-Factor Authentication. This can be configured at the Safe Computing DUO page.
  • Stable Internet Connection
    Users will need a stable internet connection. A minimum connection speed of 3-5 MBPS is recommended for the average user. A high-bandwidth connection is recommended for a higher quality experience.
