Virtual Private Network (VPN) for students

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is used to give access via the Internet to services and servers that are not freely accessible via the public Internet.

What to use VPN for?

When you are off-campus and want to send a print job to the printers on campus. 

Logging on to VPN (GlobalProtect) is possible via Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) only

Please keep in mind to verify the login in your Microsoft Authenticator app. Please note that VPN (GlobalProtect) does not show a notification or pop-up indicating that you need to approve the login. Each time you log on to your VPN, you will have to use the Microsoft Authenticator app. After providing a valid username/password combination, an approval message will immediately appear in the Authenticator app.
