Accessing ArgoApps

Starting in 2024 you must submit an access request via ArgoApps Access Request. Once approved, there are two ways to access ArgoApps. Click here to see the feature comparison.

ArgoApps Lite

This web-based version of ArgoApps is simple and convenient but lacks features.

To access ArgoApps Lite, please search for 'ArgoApps' in or visit

ArgoApps using the Citrix Workspace App

For the best experience, we recommend using the Citrix Workspace App since it has more features. You must download, install, and configure the Citrix Workspace App; but once completed you no longer need to go to to access ArgoApps. Simply launch the Citrix Workspace App from your own computer.

For help installing the Citrix Workspace App, please see ArgoApps Help: Citrix Workspace App.

Not all apps are available on the Citrix Workspace App.


  • For both ArgoApps Lite, and ArgoApps with the Citrix Workspace App
    • Reliable high-speed Internet connection
      • The recommended bandwidth is 5 Mbps (source).
      • Visit to check your Internet speed.
  • For ArgoApps Lite only

Inactivity Timer

After 30 minutes of inactivity, a user is disconnected then given an additional 30 minutes to reconnect and resume their work. If a user does not reconnect within that 30 minute window (1 hour of total inactivity), the user is automatically logged off and any unsaved information may be lost. This feature is in place to preserve system resources for other users.
