Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a Web-based solution that provides secure, off-campus access to W&L network resources, such as private and shared network files and W&L library databases.

Any computer using the VPN must have anti-virus software and an up-to-date operating system.  See the complete list of requirements. Up-to-date Java client is also required.

The VPN will automatically disconnect after a period of inactivity.  Return to the VPN start page if you need to start another session.

The VPN is a shared resource; please log out when you are finished using it.
