Citrix services are intended for UC Berkeley enterprise applications. Citrix provides a secure one stop shop for certain UC Berkeley applications not installed on your computer (e.g. BAIRS, CalPlanning, etc). This eliminates compatibility and security issues, such as the need to run a specific web browser version for each application.

The Citrix Receiver replaces the traditional Remote Desktop Connection.  It provides better scalability and a more consistent user experience between Mac, Windows and other devices.

Service Request support is available M-F, 8-5. Extended support is available 24x7 for emergency events.
