Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides secure access to restricted University data using an off-campus computer. The VPN is required when using any home computer or laptop to access restricted data remotely.

To connect to the VPN, you must install a VPN client. A VPN client is a piece of software installed on your computer or laptop that allows you to access a service installed on a central server. After you install the virtual private network (VPN) client, you can connect to the University's VPN from anywhere.
