Access academic software anytime, anywhere, on any device

Wednesday, Aug 26, 2020

New this fall, Princeton faculty, researchers, and students can use Vi-Lab to access academic software anytime, anywhere, and on any device. A virtual alternative to physical computer labs like the campus computing clusters, Vi-Lab also offers collaboration tools that enable communication, screen sharing, and group work. All you need is a standard web browser and a strong Internet connection.

For more information, including a list of software that you can access through Vi-Lab, see Vi-Lab: Get started with Princeton’s virtual computing environment.  You can also search the Princeton Service Portal for 'Vi-Lab Fall2020.'

To get started, go to, log in with your Princeton netID and password, locate the Vi-Lab Desktop and click the Launch button.
