Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a secure, encrypted connection to the Seattle University main campus network from networks outside of the campus firewall. It allows access to specific Seattle University network resources as if your computer was connected directly on campus.

Requesting Access

All faculty, staff, students, and accepted applicants with a Seattle University network account automatically have access to VPN. Please refer to the OIT Knowledge Base article regarding installing VPN and accessing the service.
