UFApps is a full production service provided by UFIT and provides UF students affordable access to Microsoft Windows based desktop tools, UF services, and select software applications through the cloud from any PC or Macintosh computing device including tablets and smartphones from any location. When accessing the UF Apps login page for the first time, users will be prompted to download the Citrix Receiver and install it onto their machines in order access the applications remotely.
Currently, access is free except for select Adobe Creative Cloud suite products which are available for a small license fee.
Faculty may also request access to UFApps to verify that students can complete assignments with the software configurations in UFApps.
Applications to All Courses
Many courses require expensive and specialized software that many times students can only access in student computer labs. With the advent of more online courses, UFApps provides access through CitrixReceiver to software programs such as ArcGIS, Autodesk, JetBrains, Microsoft Office applications, Serif Design Suite, SketchUp, and the Adobe Suite of applications. Files can be stored on the University’s M: Drive and faculty can contact UF APPS at IT to gain specific course storage space accessible by students and instructors.

Keep accessibility in mind as you develop course content and build assignments and assessments. Many online tools are not fully accessible, so it’s important to think about how you will make the assignment accessible if requested. The Disability Resource Center and the UF Accessibility page will guide you in making appropriate accommodations. You can also find out more about accessibility at our toolbox page on Accessibility in the Online Classroom.
