The Concordia Virtual Desktop can be accessed via many devices. So many that it is impossible to create tutorials for them all. To connect to our VDI, you must use the VMware Horizon View Client. As long as you can download that client, you can use the information below to connect to the virtual desktop. The systems that currently have a version of VMware Horizon View Client are:
  • Windows
  • Mac
  • Ubuntu Linux
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Windows 8 RT

Where to Download

Instructions for Mac, Windows, and iOS devices can be found on the previous page. If you are looking for those, click here, then select the correct tutorial.

Installation should be pretty straight forward. If you are a Linux user, you should be able to figure it out and once selected in android or RT, the app should automatically appear. The three things you will need to connect once the app is running is:
  1. Server: For On-Campus users it is, virtual.ntdom.cupdx | For Off-Campus users it is, virtual.cu-portland.edu
  2. Username and Password: you will use your network username and password to connect. This is the same set of credentials you use to access Concordia email.
