Computer Commons Remote Access

The Division of Information Technology is happy to announce access to the Computer Commons. CC15 and CC15A Windows computers will be available remotely with FIT Remote Labs, powered by Leostream (FRL) for FIT students.  

The FRL service allows students remote access to the Computer Commons and specialty software they may not otherwise have access to on a home or personal computer, enabling students to work during the early morning hours wherever they are located as long as they have a
computer (tablets and mobile devices are not compatible), a reliable internet connection and an up-to-date browser.

Students will automatically be removed from FRL at 6 AM, please save your work often and log out in advance of 6 AM.
