At Drexel, many information services can be used anywhere, but some are restricted to on-campus access, such as file servers, databases, websites, and privileged applications. Anyone who needs to use these campus-only services can either physically travel to the campus, or connect remotely through a virtual private network (VPN). A VPN provides a secure, encrypted connection from Drexel's on-campus network services to an off-campus computer or device.
Connecting to the VPN
You can start a VPN connection with the free Cisco AnyConnect client app, which is available on computers (Windows and Mac), smartphones (iPhone, Android, and Windows), and tablets (iPad, Android, and Windows). Instructions for installing and setting up the AnyConnect client are available on IT's Virtual Private Network page.
Install and Use AnyConnect VPN Client
Note: VPN connection at Drexel requires Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). See more information on our MFA Setup page.
