What is PrideDesktop?


PrideDesktop uses virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to allow you to run a virtual Hofstra Windows computer within your own compatible device. Faculty and students can remotely access the software resources normally only found on Hofstra computers from any compatible device both inside and outside of the classroom, 24/7/365. macOS users can use PrideDesktop to access software normally only available to Windows users, like Microsoft Access.
