University faculty and staff may access campus resources from an off-campus computer using a service called UConnect, which uses Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology.
If you have been using Remote Desktop or PuTTY to access your work computer or other campus resources from off-campus, you will need to sign in to UConnect before you can connect to other University computers and servers.
Before you are able to use UConnect, you will need to request a UConnect account.
There are two options for using UConnect, you will be emailed setup instructions once your UConnect has been created:
- a portal, which is accessed via web browser
- a client, which is accessed by a desktop shortcut installed on your home computer
