When connecting from off-campus, OIT offers several remote options based on your needs including the university's virtual private network (VPN) and using a remote desktop and applications (often referred to as VDI). Please note that you will be prompted for multi-factor authentication through Duo during login to the VPN or VMware Horizon for remote access. Registration and installation of Duo will need to be completed prior to using either option.
In addition to using your university password to access theVPN, a second authentication method will be required through Duo. To get started using the GlobalProtect VPN service you'll need to be sure you have registered first with Duo Security.
