Virtual Private Network

By creating an encrypted stream between your computer and campus, USU's Virtual Private Network (VPN) server provides you with a secure, remote connection to the university network. Authorized users can access the university network from anywhere (home, hotel, conference, etc.) with a secure Internet connection.

For the VPN connection to be established, the system authenticates users with A-Numbers and associated passwords (same as Banner).

The USU VPN does not require a client download. With no client to download, configuration is done through your current Windows or Macintosh operating systems.


This service is funded through the Information Technology Network Funding model.
