This page has been setup to provide you with instructions to start the Teamviewer application on your computer to allow a Computer Support staff person at RRU to access to your computer.

The link below installs a "single use" instance of the Teamviewer software.  The button must be clicked each time you would like RRU Computer Support Staff to connect to your computer.  It does not allow access after the instance is closed, and it only allows us access when you provide the assigned password (that it gives you).  Please only run this software if requested by RRU staff.
