Setting up a VPN connection to campus

Some websites and servers are secured by a firewall that only allows connections from on campus. To access these restricted resources from off campus, you will need a VPN connection. Note:Most students don't have access to systems that aren't available from off campus, so a VPN connection is rarely ever needed by students.

Information Technology Services now operates a VPN service for faculty, staff and students. More information about their service is available at
