myApps is a virtual Windows desktop that gives students, faculty and staff the ability to access applications anywhere a high speed Internet connection is available.


Students, faculty and staff can all access myApps through the myNEU portal. It is recommended that you have a high-speed, wired connection.

Sponsored Account holders do not have access to myApps.

For a list of applications that are available on myApps, see Available Software – Labs, Classrooms and Individual Access.

Get Started

To use myApps you must have remote desktop software installed on your computer. Follow the instructions linked in the How To’s below for Windows and for Mac.

To save files created or edited within myApps applications, you must save to myFiles (the U:\ drive).

NOTE: It is recommended you log out of myApps when you are done – instead “X”ing out to close it – to avoid problems with applications the next time you connect.
