After only now having discovered that we are able to access UWA labs remotely thanks 
to a throwaway line on the home page of the unit, I've spent the last half an hour 
trying to find a way to access the azure labs. there is no other mention of it on the 
unit website, no announcements mention it, and there is only one help forum discussion 
that even hints at it being a possibility. How exactly am i supposed to access the 
azure labs? what is the link?

Hi Logan,
   Thanks for bringing it up. In my understanding, you should have received an email 
directly from University IT regarding the Azure lab. I am mentioning it based on the 
instructions on the following URL https://www.uwa.edu.au/library/learning-online. Can you 
please check with the University IT regarding that. I will also enquire about it and update 
the thread with the information I get. Surprisingly, this is the first enquiry about Azure 
lab for this unit so far.

Regards,
Naveed

Thanks for the quick response.

unfortunately i don't seem to have received an email regarding Azure. I've tried using the unidesk 
remote access but the labs don't appear to have the required software installed.

Hi Logan,
   Thanks for the update. I've also received the reply from IT. Unfortunately, Azure lab solution is for 
overseas students only. Students in Australia are expected to access machines via Unidesk. However, IT 
is currently struggling to make both these solutions use Intel graphics of the machines, as rendering is 
being done with software. I've pushed the IT for a quick solution. However, the solution does not seem 
trivial. So, relying on it is not advisable. I will make an announcement in this regard shortly. Please 
see that and follow the instructions there. Thanks.

Regards.
Naveed
