Virtual Access to Computer Lab Software

The computer labs in Old-Upton 321B and Dewing 207 have been made accessible virtually to Kalamazoo College students, faculty and staff.

These labs have Windows computers running SPSS, Atlas.TI, Stata, R Studio, MATLAB, Adobe Creative Suite, ArcGIS, Office 365, and other apps.

To Connect

  • Sign in at using your KNET username and password
  • Press the sign to expand the OU321B lab or the DE207 lab, depending on which software you want to use.
  • Choose and click an unoccupied computer from the list of computers in the selected lab.
    • Occupied workstations are labeled “Currently in use by 1 user”.
    • If a workstation appears available but you are unable to connect, please try another workstation.
  • When you connect to a computer, you will need to wait several seconds for Windows to prepare your desktop.
  • Your browser window will become the screen of the computer you chose, and you are logged in and can control the computer with your mouse and keyboard.
  • Don’t print anything; printouts are not retrievable from the lab printer.
  • Save your work to OneDrive. Your M: drive isn’t available from off campus.
  • Sign out when you’re done.


You can change the settings for your input devices and screen resolution. To get to the preferences menu, click Ctrl+Alt+Shift on Windows; or Ctrl+Option+Shift on a Mac; or swipe right from the left edge of your screen on touchscreen devices.

Things you can change:

  • mouse emulation for touchscreen devices (whether you want simply to tap to click, or to emulate mouse movement by dragging on a touchscreen)
  • keyboard emulation (on-screen keyboard)
  • display zoom

For best results, we recommend using a desktop/laptop computer to connect to the online lab.
