Virtual Private Network

The Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides secure access to many of the University's network resources when you are off campus. Essentially, a VPN "fools" the network into thinking the user is at Fordham, even though the computer connection is taking place offsite.

Once you log into the VPN with your AccessIT ID and password to use the VPN and VPN /Plus applications listed below, your computer will function as if it were on a campus administrative network, and your applications will run normally and securely. VPN requires a high speed (broadband) Internet connection.

For instructions on connecting to the VPN, use the online guide for your operating system:
