Citrix using Duo starting August 10th, 2021

Citrix is a resource available to UNI students and faculty to access applications and desktops while off campus. Important changes to be aware of for Citrix at UNI are noted below. 

Multi-factor Authentication

Citrix will start requiring MFA via Duo on August 10th, 2021 to match campus security standards. If you currently use Duo, you will start to see this change on August 10th. If you are a student that currently does not have Duo turned on, you won’t be prompted by Duo to access Citrix until it is turned on for your account. When this option is available, you will receive communication from campus IT. If you would like to learn more about multi-factor authentication at UNI, visit this page


New Interface

Citrix is now available via your web browser!  Simply navigate to and access the applications and\or desktops in your web browser without having to download a client. You can continue to use the client, but we encourage you to give the web client a try. 


If you decide to continue to use the client, no problem!  When using the Citrix client you will not receive a prompt asking your preference for your Duo authentication. You can expect this Duo prompt to come to your phone and are required to verify your identity before you can log into the client.
