The VPN Service allows you to connect your computer to the University Network while off-site, allowing you to access to on-site computers, storage or other systems. It is recommended for people with reasonable technical understanding. If you just need to access email or files, there are simpler and quicker methods – see this summary.
Please note, we cannot provide remote support for off-site computers.
This service is available for free to those with a CSCS user account and network connection.
We aim to process all applications within 3 days, however wait times may be longer at launch. Documentation on configuring your computer to use the VPN can be found in our User Guide Section
