Windows Environments

Access through VPN or a Brown Compliant network

Users are able to access their Windows environments through the Microsoft Remote Desktop Client. Users on campus must be connected to the Brown WiFi or a wired connection in a research building. Off-campus users can access their environments by connecting through the Brown VPN

To access the environment, please either follow the Access from Mac or Access from Windows guides.

Access without VPN

Some Windows workstations can be accessed without being connected to a VPN through a remote desktop (RDP) gateway. This service is intended for users who experience a degradation in performance while they are connected to the VPN. Please confirm with if RDP gateway is enabled for your tenant before following these instructions.

To access these workstations through the remote gateway, please either follow RDP Gateway from Mac or RDP Gateway from Windows
