How do I remote into my computer from another location?

Wayne State University employees may remotely access their desktop. C&IT recommends communicating with departmental IT to verify if a desktop is enabled for a remote session and to find the correct IP address and/or computer name.


If you wish to connect to your desktop from off campus, you must connect to the VPN. For steps connecting to the VPN, visit:


Remote Desktop Connection (Microsoft)


Use the resources below to remotely access your desktop using the Remote Desktop Connect client.



NOTE: Please contact your department IT for assistance. If you have more questions, please contact the C&IT Help Desk at 313-577-4357 or Learn more about the WSU VPN on the Knowledge Base.
