Off Campus Access

UC VPN Information:

  • If you are a UC faculty, staff, or currently enrolled student, Secure Access VPN is the preferred off campus access experience when starting your research from off campus.

  • The first time you use VPN you will log in to the website using your Central Login Service credentials. Once you have entered the site click on the Network Connect “Start” button at the bottom of the table and wait for the orange lock icon to appear on your taskbar.

  • Your initial login will trigger a download that installs in the background once you go to the beige security bar between your browser tool bars and the content of the web page and click on "Accept." Once you have downloaded this agent you will be able to see a “Network Connect” icon in your start menu list of applications. 

  • The next time you start your research, start the VPN client for the smoothest experience with our online resources from your start menu and then launch your browser and begin your research.
