Working Remotely - VPN

Cisco AnyConnect VPN

The VPN service, allows staff and students secure access to University resources from off-campus by using the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client service.

The AnyConnect Client is an app that connects your laptop or computer to the University’s network from anywhere, as long as you are connected to the internet.

To access the University's VPN service, Staff and PGRs will be required to authenticate their credentials via Duo Push, an additional layer of security. Details about the multi-factor authentication service and how to register for this can be found below. 

All of your Internet traffic goes through the VPN to Loughborough, allowing you access to University internet based resources which could otherwise be restricted to on-campus use only. 

When connected to the VPN you are bound by the University's IT Acceptable Use Policy. Please remember to disconnect when you are finished.
