What is a VPN?
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. VPN allows for a temporary encrypted connection to UNLV's network across the internet. This link allows the transfer of information and data securely, giving access to campus resources that would otherwise be inaccessible. When connected to VPN, all internet traffic is routed via the campus network.
The UNLV VPN is used by faculty and staff who need remote access to UNLV desktops on campus, as well as access to UNLV websites and systems that are not accessible from off campus.
Accessing the VPN Service
Users requiring VPN access must contact the OIT Help Desk to have this service enabled. After access is enabled, you will use your ACE username and password to log into the VPN service through the VPN client. If you are not a UNLV student or employee and need access, or do not know your ACE username or password, please contact the OIT Help Desk.
