VPN (virtual private network)

UWL's VPN service allows any UWL associate to connect to campus remotely from any available network connection almost anywhere in the world: including from home, from many hotels, and even from within some company networks.

VPN information: 

  • Over the internet - Faculty, staff, and students can log in at vpn.uwlax.edu with their NetID username and password to access campus resources, like network storage.
  • From UWL computers - All campus laptops are deployed with a VPN client (Cisco AnyConnect) that faculty and staff members can use.  Logging into the VPN client allows access to campus resources, like network storage.
