Remote Access VPN

Remote access, reserved only for mission critical staff access, is available through our Pulse Secure VPN solution. This is only necessary if you require access to Banner or other campus-only services such as a network drive with files you are not able to move to OneDrive. Remote access is a shared and limited resource. It should be used as sparingly as possible. If you require it only for access to files on your network drives, we request that you move those files to OneDrive for editing and sharing among those who require access.
