Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

TCC's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) allows you to log on to a Windows 10 virtual desktop from anywhere you have internet access.

What is VDI?

Using VDI is like to logging on to a campus computer, but provides you with virtual access to many campus applications and programs, including:

  • Microsoft Office (such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Access)
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • NetLab

Since VDI has the resources and software you need, you don't need to download anything directly to your device to get your work done.

What device do I need to use VDI?

You can use any operating system and any browser on your:

  • Laptop computer
  • Desktop computer
  • Mobile phone
  • Tablet

How do I connect to VDI?

Visit to log in with your myTCC email and password.

Make sure you log off when you're finished with your session.

Do I need to download anything to use VDI?

No. After you're logged in, you can access all programs and applications through your browser.

How do I save work when I use VDI?

You'll use Microsoft OneDrive to save your work while you're on a VDI workspace. Microsoft OneDrive allows you to access your documents anywhere, anytime, from any device.

Inactive VDI sessions will automatically be disconnected after 10 minutes. Any unsaved work will be lost after 15 minutes of inactivity.

Download the TCC VDI Reference Guide (PDF) for instructions on how to save your work to your OneDrive.

Can I access my OneDrive outside of VDI?

Yes. Visit OneDrive online and sign in with your TCC email and password.

Can I print from VDI?

No. Printing is not supported if you're using a web browser or mobile device.
