Campus VPN


Campus VPN

First-time setup

Before connecting to Campus VPN the first time, you will need to enter a few settings.

How to connect/disconnect

Legacy SSL VPN

While the new Campus VPN is available, it has not yet been fully rolled out. In the meantime, if there are services you connect to that the Campus VPN does not yet support, you can still use the legacy SSL VPN. To access the SSL VPN, open a web browser, go to and enter your OHIO ID and password.


The Campus VPN uses the built-in VPN capabilities of Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android to provide fast, secure off-campus access to online resources such as remote desktop, remote printing, or shared network storage access that normally would require you to be connected to the on-campus network. 


How to Request

VPN access is enabled by default for all faculty, staff, and emeriti. Students or guests who need VPN access should contact the IT Service Desk.
