    All W. P. Carey staff, faculty, and research students who previously used W. P. Carey’s instance of the Citrix virtual desktop environment. 


    What is impacted:

    All resources previously available from W. P. Carey’s instance of Citrix still exist. However, the mechanism used to reach them is no longer there. Users will need to find alternative methods to reach these resources.


    What is not impacted:

    Any other instances of Citrix or resources available through Citrix at ASU, including anything managed by UTO or other colleges, is not impacted.
