MyTools Support

MyTools delivers software as an on-demand service to Cal State LA students, faculty, and staff. MyTools provides secure access to virtual instances of commonly used software from anywhere, at any time, using a computer, laptop, tablet, or other mobile devices with an internet connection. The only limiting factors are whether the screen on the device can display the results in a readable format and whether the software is compatible with the device. Before you can use MyTools, you need to set up your device by installing the Parallels Client.
