Remote Access

Off campus access to drives and software (VDI, VPN, Direct Access)

VDI

Use the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to access electronic resources and powerful applications such as MatLab, Petrel and Wolfram, on a personal device (Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android).

Note: This is not supported on Legacy Edge. If your account is MFA enabled you will be prompted for additional authentication on sign in.

Web VPN

Web VPN provides secure, authenticated remote access to University resources via a personal device. All you need is an internet connection – open your web browser and log into the VPN with your usual University username and password.

Notes: You can't use the VPN to access shared network drives or your H-drive. Use the VDI to access those instead.

For instructions on mapping network drives on a Mac please contact the IT Service Desk.

Direct Access (Staff Only)

Direct Access seamlessly connects your University owned and managed Windows laptop to the University network whenever you are off campus. We are currently transitioning to a new remote access solution - F5 VPN - more information can be found on the University webpages.
