A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a technology solution that allows you to securely connect to university based resources which wouldn’t regularly be available from the internet. This connection to the university network is encrypted, and allows you to connect to campus resources ‘like you were on the campus network’. Using the VPN, you can access items such as file shares, internal websites and internal applications from either your UMass Lowell owned device or personal device, using the public internet. For more information, visit: VPN at UMass Lowell
Usage of the UMass Lowell VPN requires multi-factor authentication using DUO. If you are not currently enrolled in DUO for other applications such as HR Direct, please do so first by visiting the Multi-Factor Authentication Website.
