Using Loyola Workspace

VMware Horizon Clients

Workspace can be accessed directly through a web browser, but the VMware Horizon Client can be installed for a more feature-rich experience.  To install the client, choose the correct version for your operating system (Windows/Mac/Linux):

Windows (10, 8.1, 7)

macOS

Linux 32-bit or Linux 64-bit

If you are prompted to enter a server address, press cancel--this step is not required to use Loyola Workspace.

Accessing Loyola Workspace

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to https://workspace.loyola.edu 
  2. The first time you launch Loyola Workspace, it will prompt you for domain.  Press OK to choose the default (ad.loyola.edu).  Checking the Remember this setting checkbox will suppress it from asking again.
  3. Log in using your Loyola username and password
  4. If you have been enrolled in two-factor authentication, you will be prompted for your DUO authentication (learn more about two-factor authentication)
  5. The list of available applications is displayed

Launching a Program

  1. If you have the VMware Horizon Client installed, you can simply click on any application to launch it.
  2. If you do not have the VMware Horizon Client installed, you can still use Loyola Workspace by opening applications in your browser:
    1. Right-click on the application you would like to launch
    2. Press the OPEN button
    3. Press the ...in Browser button
    4. Your application will open in a new browser tab

Setting up bookmarks

You can mark frequently used applications as favorites so they are easier to find when you log in.

  1. Navigate to the "Catalog" view of all applications.
  2. Choose the "Bookmark" icon

Viewing bookmarks

  1. On the home screen, there are tabs under the search bar for "Bookmarks" and "Catalog."
