What is SkyBox?

SkyBox is a virtual desktop that provides software, instantly, connecting students to valuable resources. SkyBox can be accessed 24/7, giving students the freedom to do their work when and where they want. SkyBox is provided through your university technology fee, enabling UConn to offer you the most up-to-date software.


SkyBox was developed by the School of Business, the School of Engineering, University Information Technology Systems (UITS), and the University Libraries. The project formerly known as ‘vPC’ has been delivering its service to the UConn community since the fall of 2011. In June of 2013, UConn vPC was rebranded as SkyBox, which continues to grow today as a collaborative UConn initiative.
