Remote access to the campus network requires the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN). WebVPN provides an easy and secure solution for browsing IP restricted campus resources from off-campus locations. The VPN service also provides a "thin" SSL VPN client for users who need access to non web-based resources such as shared network drives, or for access to sites that don't function adequately with the WebVPN tool.

Log in at https://vpnaccess.utah.edu using your uNID and password.
Note: Use of the service must comply with the University of Utah Information Resources Policy.
To browse using SSL WebVPN, enter a URL in the Address field. Be sure to include "www" if appropriate.
Choose https:// from the drop down list for secure destination sites.
Note: WebVPN will display your connection status during your browser session. When using WebVPN, only the current tab of the current web browser will be connected via VPN. Other tabs and other browsers will remain connected through your regular off-campus connection.
Some resources require the use of a VPN client. Additionally, some users experience problems connecting to some web-based resources through WebVPN.
