How To: VPN

What is the Queen's VPN?

The Queen's VPN is an application that allows your computer to connect to the internet as if your computer were located on the Queen's University network. It allows you to access Queen's Library resources from any off-campus location. You can still use the Web Proxy (with NetID) to access library resources from off campus, but you need to login multiple times whenever new browser windows are launched. For more information, please see: A comparison of the Web Proxy and the Queen's VPN.
