Student Remote Access


Now you can access programs found on Green River computers from your own device!

Green River has deployed virtual desktops running many of the applications students use on campus that you can access from anywhere you have an internet connection on your own device (PC, Mac, tablet, smartphone, etc.). In addition to some of the programs found on the computers in the Green River open labs, these virtual desktops also provide access to the student H, S & T network drives. To access one of these desktops from your own device, please go to, login using the same login and password that you use when logging on to a computer on campus, then launch the "Student Desktop" icon.

If you have not set your computer login password yet, go to and then click on the “Change Password” link in the upper right of the screen. You will be prompted to verify your identity and then will be able to specify a password for use when logging on to campus computers.

Get Started!

Microsoft Office is installed locally on the virtual desktop, but each time you access a new virtual desktop, you will be prompted to activate Office using your Green River student e-mail account. When prompted, please click the “Sign In” option, then enter your student email address and the password of your student email account. If necessary, when prompted, please select the “Work or School account” option.

If you have any comments or suggestions regarding these virtual desktops, please contact the Library.

Since virtual desktops do not provide an optimal video viewing experience, we recommend watching videos directly on your device rather than on the virtual desktop.
