Virtual Computing Labs

Virtual Computing Lab (VCL) is a service that allows Duke users to reserve a computer with specialized software and access it remotely from anywhere that you have Internet access. Virtual machines are available for the current versions of Matlab (Windows XP/7 & Linux) as well as Microsoft Office (Windows XP/7). Course-specific images are also available for several schools.

Duke has also made it easy for students and faculty to create virtual machine (VM) environments with semester-long access to virtual machines and Linux Docker containers for software development projects via the VM Manage service.
