Important notice: iOS 15 (iCloud+ subscription)

From iOS 15 and the next version of macOS (Monterey) Apple are introducing iCloud Private Relay. This is an always on VPN that tunnels traffic out via Apple servers and is part of the iCloud+ subscription.

Devices using this service will be unable to access internal campus resources as the traffic will originate from external to the university. It also circumvents protection we provide to protect campus users.

As such we have decided to block this for on campus users. This means that any user with it enabled will get an alert saying that they need to either disable Private Relay for your network or choose another network.
