VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. Using the Cisco VPN client software, you can connect a WSU laptop to the WSU network from off campus. This software is already installed on all WSU laptops. 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 (Windows 8.1)

    • From the START screen type in VPN (anywhere on the screen)
    • SEARCH will appear on the right hand side of your screen. Choose "Cisco VPN Client".
    • Click on "Connect"

On PC (Windows 7)

If you go to your Start Menu, and search "Cisco" 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 "Cisco", it should be the first search result under Applications.
