Virtual Private Network

Use the Virtual Private Network (VPN) to connect to the university network from off-campus and access resources only available from within the network. Download the VPN below.

VPN Update
The VPN has temporarily been expanded using additional connection addresses. The standard connection address for the VPN is secureaccess.gsu.edu. If experiencing an issue at the standard address, users can try inputting the following addresses in the connection address field of the Anyconnect VPN client to attempt a faster connection:
secureaccess2.gsu.edu, secureaccess3.gsu.edu, or secureaccess4.gsu.edu

Additionally, the following software and software access systems no longer require the VPN for access – SPSSSTATA and vLab. Note that WebExMicrosoft TeamsOneDriveiCollege, and Office 365 Email are all available from off-campus via the web and do not require the VPN, as is the case with most online systems.
