Virtual Private Network (VPN) Request and Setup Information

Network Engineering manages VPN service for Southern Illinois University. 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. VPN service is available to the faculty and staff for University business needs. In some cases, VPN is approved for SIU students with an academic need.

VPN access is also available for vendors/consultants working with departments across campus. LAN Admins or IT Technical contacts should submit a request on the vendor/consultant's behalf. If you're not sure who your LAN Admin is, you can look them up on the Desktop Support LAN Admin page.

If you have any questions or need technical support, please contact salukitech@siu.edu or 618-453-5155.
