Connect to VPN using Juniper Client

Overview

Virtual Private Networking (VPN) software creates a secure, encrypted connection between your off-campus computer and the campus network. Members of the University community can use VPN software to connect securely to the campus network from off-campus.  This software, called Pulse Secure, must be downloaded to your computer,  installed and configured. To connect using the full VPN client, download it below, install and configure it as directed.

The Pulse Secure client app is available for iOS and Android mobile operating systems. Visit the Google Play Store or Apple App Store  to obtain it.
