Need a new mailing list?

Request a Google Group instead! A Google Group acts as both a traditional mailing list as well as a message archive stored on the web, and has replaced LISTSERV for manually-managed mailing lists as of January 1, 2020.
Virtual private networking (VPN)

A virtual private network (VPN) connection allows remote access to campus-only services (such as restricted web applications or office computers) from outside the campus network.

Notice: The VPN service was upgraded on Sunday, May 16, 2021. If you have an existing connection profile, you will not be able to connect to the university VPN until you remove and recreate your connection settings.

If you have trouble connecting to VPN after May 16, please follow the updated instructions to remove and reconfigure your VPN connection with the new settings.

WebNow is the web version of ImageNow that is only used for viewing (read-only access). If your department does not need to enter documents into the system, and only needs to view existing documents, you can request a WebNow account.
Wireless network
The wireless network provides current students, recent graduates, current employees, and UA Little Rock guests with access to both campus and internet services. Wireless network services are also available on the Bowen School of Law campus.
