Ross Anywhere


There are many classes at Ross that require specialized software. Ross IT offers students of the Ross School of Business access to connect using your laptop or iPad to Ross Anywhere Lab via internet connection.

The Ross Anywhere machines function the same as any laptop or desktop machine provided by Ross IT. Please note that Ross Anywhere is accessible only to Ross Students, by providing your UM credentials.

We've recently increased the number of concurrent sessions to 80, allowing for more students to use the service!
