AppCloud provides students, faculty and staff with virtual access to Windows applications specific to their courses anywhere an Internet connection is available.


Students, faculty, and staff can access AppCloud by either installing and running the VMware Horizon software on their computer, or by using a web browser of their choice.


To install VMware Horizon Client software, go to http://appcloud.neu.edu and enter your myNEU username and password. Follow the directions in the How-To for your operating system.

Once you have the VMware Horizon software installed on your computer, you will need to set up sharing so that you will be able to save and open files in your computer’s Documents folder from any virtualized application using the VMware Horizon client.


If you are missing an application required for your course, or to report any problems contact the ITS Service Desk at (617) 373-4357 (xHELP) or email help@northeastern.edu. To provide feedback on AppCloud, send an email to its_daas@northeastern.edu.
