Enhanced security and privacy are the two main reasons to use VPN. You also have an ability to access University resources such as information on your network drives. This provides you with a safe way of accessing your applications and files as though your computer or mobile device was on campus.
Virtual Private Network
Faculty, staff and students who use CSUN's virtual private network (VPN) to access campus resources from off-campus have access to the VPN (GlobalProtect).
Students, faculty, staff (and other approved users) with a CSUN user ID and password can download VPN to their computers from the IT Downloads Page, or to their mobile devices from the iOS app store or Google Play store. The VPN software is available for no additional cost and downloading only takes a few minutes.
