VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure way to connect to WWU's network from home. You need an existing internet connection, then download and run our VPN client. You can then access your WWU employee email using Outlook, access your network drives, or use Remote Desktop to access your work computer.
Students who need to access network drives from off campus should NOT use this form. For network drive access simply request VPN from the Help Desk per the instructions above.
If you connect to securevpn.wwu.edu using an outdated Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility client for Mac OS-X or Windows, the client will automatically exit if an update exists. Then the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Downloader will automatically download and install the updated client. Once the update completes, the VPN client should automatically connect. The process should take no more than a few minutes, depending on the speed of your Internet connection.
You may be asked if you want to allow "Cisco Secure Desktop - Hostscan Launch Utility" to make changes to your computer. Click the Yes button, along with your password, if required.
Once connected, you can connect to your network drives, use Outlook, or run Remote Desktop to access your office computer. Click HERE for instructions on mapping network drives.
VPN is a shared resource with limited connections. Please make sure that you disconnect when not using the network resources.
