Accessing Citrix

Citrix can be accessed worldwide via most common web browsers from this link: https://citrix.eui.eu/.

The link is always available as well in the Quick Links section of the ICT Homepage.

 

Introduction

The Citrix Farm hosts most of the research software available on Computer Room PCs (for a full list, please check Available Software).

Its main purpose is to provide users (mainly Researchers and Fellows) a research software environment on their personally-owned laptops while attending classes/workshops at the EUI.

Please Note: Citrix is NOT intended for heavy computational tasks as its computational performance is NOT adequate for such a purpose.! Please contact the IT User Support if you are in need of a high-speed computing facility.

Its main advantages are:

  • User-friendly interface
  • Windows based software "like on your EUI desktop"
  • Jobs running "live" (interactive mode)
  • Personal network area (G:  Drive) directly accessible
