Working from Home?

If you are arriving at this page because you are planning to work from home, please visit our Work from Home checklist, as many faculty and staff-facing systems do not require establishing a VPN connection.

However a small subset of faculty and staff-facing systems do require an encrypted VPN connection for off-campus access, and hence that you install and configure Virtual Private Network (VPN) client software in advance, in order to access them:

  • Network drives (W, V, P)
  • Travel & Expense workflow
  • INB Banner (e.g. Banner Forms)
  • Remote Desktop
