Horizon: Software in the Cloud


Whether you are on or off campus, using a PC, Mac or mobile device, you can access UNCW software through Horizon. This is a secure, private cloud for the UNCW campus community.

Horizon includes updated versions of the most commonly used applications in both stand-alone and desktop form. Students, faculty and staff can enjoy these features from a Web browser, or they may download the Horizon client (recommended) and can also download the app on their mobile devices. The Horizon client has been installed in computer labs around campus and is available for faculty and staff to download in the Software Center.
