cVPN (Cisco AnyConnect)


The Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows a University of Chicago community member to securely access The University’s network off campus, from anywhere in the world.

Since some services are only available to students, staff, and faculty connected to the network, a VPN connection is essential to access those necessary tools and services.

Service Category

A staff member who is working from home needs to access a group file on tank and must connect to VPN in order to access that file.

Compliance Information

Payment card information, pertaining to credit or debit cards, is not a permitted data type on VPN.
