Connecting through the Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides a secure, remote connection to the university network.
Features & Options
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 their A# and USU password.
The VPN is a SSL VPN. The VPN service requires a client to be installed before it can be used. You can get the client at https://sslvpn.usu.edu and for mobile devices you can get the client from your devices app store.
