VPN Services Available to All Faculty and Staff

Virtual Private Network

The Office of Information Technology has made Virtual Private Network (VPN) services available to all faculty and staff, free of charge. Previously, these services were available only after contacting the Help Desk.

VPN allows remote access to specific University networks and systems (like department network drives) so you can work remotely as if you’re on campus. It also provides security when connecting to unknown networks like hotels or coffee shops.

For system requirements, download links, and instructions on how to install and use the VPN software, visit the Office of Information Technology website.

As a reminder, when using VPN, you are subject to the University’s Remote Access policy. To review the policy, see the Boise State University Policy Manual, Section VIII, Policy #8130.

If you have questions about VPN or need assistance installing the software, please contact the Help Desk at or call (208) 426-4357.
