VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Using the Cisco VPN client software, you can connect a WSU laptop or home computer to the WSU network from off campus. This software is already installed on all WSU laptops. You can install it on a personally-owned computer yourself. A VPN connection enables you to access select network resources as if you were on campus connected to our network directly. This includes:

To Find the VPN Client on Your WSU Laptop

  • On PC, if you go to your Start Menu, and search "VPN" in the search bar, it should be the first search result.
  • On Mac, if you go to Spotlight (in the upper right corner), and search "VPN", it should be the first search result under Applications.
