Citrix Apps

Is there a charge for this?

Why download expensive or resource-intensive software apps if you can launch them for free? With Citrix, members of the OSU community can access various apps for coursework and research.

Citrix replaces the RemoteApps remote desktop environment.

Software You Can Launch

  • ArcGIS
  • Mathematica
  • R
  • SAS and IBM SPSS
  • ...and many more!

How to Connect

Whether you're using a Mac, Windows, iOS or Android device, just use your Web Browser or Citrix Receive to access Citrix Apps — anytime, anywhere.

Once you've installed the Citrix Receiver, you may configure it to access Citrix apps, per the setup instructions on Helpdocs.

How to Save Files

The apps you launch in Citrix run on an OSU server. You'll need to save the files you create to your ONID space (2 GB maximum).

Using the Citrix Receiver Application will let you save directly to your local drives. If you're using your web browser, you'll then need to access your Home Directory to transfer your files from your ONID space to your own computer.
