UCF Apps provides you access to desktop software and lab PCs you need for your coursework from any device, at any time, from anywhere.

For your username, you must add to the end of your NID (for example: ““). You will need to use your current NID password. Please visit our frequently asked questions to learn more.

REMINDER: Make sure you back up any files you want to keep that are stored within the UCF Apps environment or the K: Drive, as we remove files from the server after every semester.

How Do I Get Started?

Q. Who has access to UCF Apps?

All current students, faculty and staff have access to most of the available software applications. See the Generally Available Apps section below for the apps available to everyone.

Q. How do I use UCF Apps?

First, install UCF Apps. You should be able to use the web browser in most cases (Chrome is our recommended web browser), but we do have a desktop client, called Citrix Workspace, that works great on just about any operating system. 

Then, learn a few tricks on how to best work with your data files in UCF Apps. UCF Apps is a virtual lab environment, where things work best when the software and the data all “live” near each other. We have created a step-by-step guide as well as a tutorial video on how best to work with your files in UCF Apps using the K: Drive. 

Still having issues?  Our knowledge base has some great how-to articles.  Additionally, you can visit the Student Support Desk in Technology Commons, or submit an incident if things were working, but now they are not.
Are you UCF Faculty or Staff and would like to add an app or consult with us on the best ways to use UCF Apps? The
