Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Service description

Connecting to PSU’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) protects personal data that is sent over the Internet when you are off campus. The VPN is useful if you need to use certain PSU systems from home that require you to be on the campus network (such as Banweb), or if you are accessing sensitive University information. Faculty and staff can also use VPN to create a remote desktop connection and access work computers from home.

Service details

To connect to the VPN, you must enroll in Duo Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). For more information, visit Connect to VPN with Duo Two-Factor Authentication.
