Off Campus Access (VPN)

Other platforms

The new AnyConnect client can be installed on:

  • Android
  • Kindle Fire
  • Google OS (including the ChromeBook)
  • Linux

Please consult your platform's Application Store to download the client. Support for Android devices is available from the PC Clinic and Service Desk to enable connectivity to wireless/VPN.

After installing the client users should configure it to connect to vpn.lboro.ac.uk and enter their normal Loughborough University username and password when prompted. 

To connect to the VPN you will be required to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). For details on how to enrol your mobile device with Duo Mobile app, please visit lboro.ac.uk/mfa.

Linux Users

Linux users can either use the Cisco AnyConnect client, which can be downloaded using the link below, or the OpenConnect SSL VPN client, further details of which can be found at http://www.infradead.org/openconnect/.  After installing the appropriate client users should configure the software to connect to vpn.lboro.ac.uk and enter their normal Loughborough University username and password when prompted.
