Connect to NYU-NET from Off Campus

about about about


VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a type of network that provides individuals who are accessing their organization's network remotely, via the Internet, with a more secure connection. By installing and using a VPN client when connecting to NYU resources via the Internet, you can ensure that your NYU-NET connection is as secure as it is when you are connected directly to NYU-NET through your office network. VPN is required to access some secure NYU services from outside NYU-NET, such as from your home connection.

NYU-NET Proxy Access

Most NYU services that require secure connections from off campus now use VPN (described above). However, a few NYU services may require you to use NYU-NET Proxy to authenticate yourself as an NYU community member.
