Enterprise Client Virtualization (Virtual Desktop)

We are transitioning the content of the PDF documents linked on this page to Knowledge Base articles in ServiceNow. Starting in the summer of 2023, the links for PDF documents on this page will no longer take users to the WUSTL Box but to ServiceNow.

Enterprise Client Virtualization (ECV) will provide physicians and clinical staff a consistent desktop environment from any location, with a single login to access all of their applications.

Below is some helpful information to get you started.


  • Please log in to your virtual desktop when you start your day to avoid delays in the exam room.
  • You will be required to enter your WUSTL Key credentials every four hours.
    • Once logged back in, you will pick up where you left off.
  • Your session will reset after 13 hours and any unsaved work will be lost.
    • Remember to save your work often.
  • The ECV screen will lock after inactivity.
    • Clinics: 30 minutes of inactivity. However, Epic will lock after 20 minutes of inactivity.
    • Hospitals: 15 minutes of inactivity.
      • Use your WUSTL Key credentials to unlock it.
      • Once logged back in, you will pick up where you left off.
