UGA’s virtual computer lab is getting an upgrade.
vLab, which offers students, faculty and staff at the University of Georgia access to computer lab software anytime, anywhere, will be upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on August 4.
There will be no downtime for vLab during the upgrade. The upgrade should improve performance in vLab, both in computer labs on campus and for users accessing vLab on their personal devices.
The vLab allows UGA students, faculty and staff to access computer lab software on their personal devices. It features programs such as Microsoft Office, SPSS, MATLAB and Stata, and is available via any web browser at vlab.uga.edu. In addition, the vLab is also available at select computer labs on campus, such as at the Miller Learning Center and in University Housing residence halls.
A valid MyID and a device enrolled in Archpass, UGA’s two-factor authentication service, are required to log in to the vLab.
