Service Description

What is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows a computer to create a private connection over the internet to the UVU Network. Using VPN technology, you can connect to the university network from anywhere off campus and securely access UVU resources as if you were physically on the UVU campus network. 

For you to get access to the Banner INB system, shared network drives, and remote student classroom resources a VPN account is required. A VPN account can also allow you to create a Remote Desktop connection to a computer physically on UVU's campus.
