Data Services is now supporting WashU-affiliated users with connecting to Research Studio computers and specialized software. This service is being developed in response to requests from the user community to access tools such as NVivo and SPSS. 

Users can find instructions on how to reserve and obtain access in this Remote Research Studio guide. The guide also lists software available in the Research Studio, including ArcGIS, NVivo, AtlasTi, SPSS, SASS, and much more. The remote desktop connection is provided by appointment and requires VPN access.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
