Virtual Desktop (VMware) is a program designed to provide access to computer programs required to complete your coursework, from your own computer or tablet when you do not have access to the computer labs at UWO-Fox Cities, UWW-Rock County, or UW-Platteville.

To download VMware, visit the ITS Help Desk’s Knowledge Base. VMware will ask for your username and password. This will be the same username and password that you use for your UW-Platteville email and Canvas account.

If you have questions about setting up VMware, contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or email
