Network Engineering manages the VPN service for Southern Illinois University. The VPN provides access to the Campus Area Network from remote locations over the Internet. This allows resources that are normally only accessible from on campus to be reached from almost anywhere there is an Internet connection. The VPN service is available to the faculty and staff for University business needs.  Also, VPN is approved for select student of SIU with an academic need.

The VPN service is also available for vendors/consultants working with departments across campus.  Requests for VPN service for vendors/consultants are accepted from the LAN admin or IT Technical contact for the department listed here. To request access, see the VPN Registration page.

Be advised that VPN accounts which have been inactive for over one year will be automatically removed; if the account needs to be reinstated after this period has elapsed a new VPN access request form will need to be submitted.
