UMass Lowell vLabs Zones

UMass Lowell vLabs allows students, faculty and staff to access software that would normally only be in computer labs found on-campus. This software can now be accessed anytime from anywhere, including residence halls, libraries, and even from home. You now have access to any tool or application available in an on-campus lab on your Laptop, home PC, and even your tablet or smartphone.
