Cloud technology allows students or employees access to campus computer resources from both on and off-campus. Students can use their own devices to access specialized software required for coursework. Cloud technology also provides access to department shared storage from an employee’s laptop.
Accessing the cloud is easy. You will need to visit cloud.fairmontstate.edu and either install the VMware Horizon Client or access the cloud through your browser by selecting the VMware Horizon HTML Access option.
If you choose to access the cloud through your web browser, you will simply sign in with your Fairmont State username and password. Employees will select the domain FAIRMONTSTATE, and students will choose STUDENTS from the drop-down menu.
Once you reach the Horizon portal, the cloud image you need to access will be visible; click on it to access the cloud. Students will see the "Students" image, while faculty & staff will see "Employees".
The desktop should then open into your browser.
If you prefer installing the software, follow the instructions below:
