A virtual private network (VPN) connection allows off-campus computer users to access campus-only services (such as accessing shared network drives or remote desktops from home). UALR provides access to the VPN service to current students and employees of the University.
The wireless (Wi-Fi) network provides campus affiliates (current students, recent graduates, and current employees) with wireless access to both campus and internet services. UALR has been operating a wireless network since early 2001. We are constantly working to improve the user experience by increasing speed, bandwidth, and coverage.
