24/7 Lab Remote Access

RooLabs Online provides remote access to lab software from the convenience of your own device. Connecting remotely to a lab in Roo Labs Online will be a similar experience to using an on-campus lab. If you have access to a general lab or departmental lab on-campus that participates in RooLabs Online, you can remotely access ALL of the same software via RooLabs Online. RooLabs Online also provides real time information regarding capacities of student computing labs located on campus and how many machines are currently in use in each lab if you plan to visit an on-campus lab.

UMKC Remote Labs also offers remote access to a variety of software. Remote Labs offers a small subset of curated software compared to RooLabs Online. The selected software has been optimized specifically for remote access. Software is organized by UMKC Departments and does not correspond to any specific on-campus offerings.
