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.

Getting started

You must set up a VPN connection on your computer prior to remotely connecting to the campus network.


Use of the virtual private network (VPN) is for university employees.

Individuals with a need to connect to restricted services from home may submit a support request to IT Services.


If you have trouble connecting to the campus network from home, contact IT Services for assistance.
