Virtual Private Network (VPN)

The BGSU Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows users to securely access resources on the BGSU network while off-campus. VPN allows users, while off-campus, to connect to secure websites, BGSU file shares, on-campus only software, and your on-campus computer.

Information Technology Services (ITS) provides all faculty and staff affiliated employees with a VPN account that can be accessed using their BGSU credentials.

Use the articles on this page to assist you in using VPN to connect to BGSU resources while off-campus.

Wireless Networks

BGSU recommends a secure wireless network (eduroam) that does not require consistent log on for current faculty, staff and students.

Wireless Guest Access allows users to connect to the BGSU wireless network (BGSU-Guest) for a limited period of time, as a guest. Wireless Guest Access supports university Guests only.

BGSU is also part of the eduroam network. Eduroam allows users from participating academic institutions to securely access the internet at any other eduroam participating locations using their home institution's email address and password. Visitors to our campus from participating organizations can log on to eduroam campus by searching for wireless networks and selecting the available eduroam option.
