VPN: Request Account

Who can use it?

BGSU Faculty, Administrative Staff

What is it?

BGSU VPN allows users to securely access resources on the BGSU network from home or while traveling outside the university. A VPN account consists of a web interface that comes with the base account. An additional feature of the VPN account is the ability to use some of the campus-only software while off campus through the Pulse Secure application. A third optional feature is Remote access, which allows a user to control a computer on campus directly by one off campus.

Where to get it?

Please complete the "Request Account" form on this page.  

If you will require access to BGSU licensed software while off-campus, please be sure to indicate this in the form. If you would like to remotely access an on-campus computer you must select this on the form as well.

If you also need to remotely access an on-campus computer or BGSU licensed software, you will need assistance with setup of Pulse Secure.  Please contact the Technology Support Center (TSC) for assistance.
