How do I set up and use IUanyWare on a computer or laptop?

For smartphone or tablet instructions, see How do I set up and run IUanyWare applications on my mobile device?

On your desktop or laptop, IUanyWare is available at https://iuanyware.iu.edu; to avoid misleading warning messages, be sure to use the https:// prefix for a secure connection.


Log into IUanyWare with your IU Network ID. The first time you do so, you will be prompted to install the necessary Citrix receiver; for instructions, see How do I install the Citrix Receiver for IUanyWare?

IUanyWare offers two file storage options:

Note: Do not store files in IUanyWare; you can instead use the Cloud Storage service.

Using IUanyWare

  • Log into IUanyWare from any on- or off-campus location to access a broad range of general-purpose and discipline-specific applications. These will appear as icons inside folders organized by category; for instance, you will find Microsoft Word 2010 under Office Tools and then Microsoft Office 2010.

  • Click an icon to run the virtualized application.

  • When you've finished with the application, you can close it normally.

  • When you're finished with IUanyWare, especially if you're on a public computer (e.g., in an STC), click Log Off and close your browser as well.

Note: In order to ensure optimum performance, your IUanyWare profile is reset at the end of each academic year (between summer and fall); for details, see About the IUanyWare user profile reset.
