Accessing ArcGIS Pro Remotely (with note for Mac Users)

UHCL offers two options for off-campus remote access to university lab workstations:

Remote Desktop provides access to ArcGIS Pro installed in the SSCB 2.201.01 Teaching Lab and all Specialty Row workstations in the SSCB Open Lab.

Apporto, a "Desktop as a Service" (DaaS) system, provides access to ArcGIS Pro through a Virtual Desktop. The Apporto Help Center provides numerous video tutorials.

Please note that Esri does not officially support running ArcGIS Pro on a Mac. Mac users are encouraged to access ArcGIS Pro virtually using Remote Access or Apporto.
