Network Connectivity

Before you connect your computer to the network, you should take steps to ensure your safety on the internet.

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.

Wired public ports

There are a number of wired network ports available throughout the main UA Little Rock campus in multiple public areas, conference rooms, and classrooms. Current students and employees may plug into these public ports to access campus and internet services.

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.
