Off-campus Network Access (VPN)

Heads up! For the most up to date information and resources, visit the IT Help Portal to browse a full list of services and instructions.

For faculty and staff who are away from campus, virtual private network (VPN) is essential for accessing on-campus remote desktops, servers or other resources. VPN is like a tunnel that allows UARK users to access university resources securely, while prohibiting unauthorized incoming traffic. VPN may be required to access certain systems, services or applications, even when the user is on campus.

Traffic Restrictions

Access to your home or non-university printers, network drives, etc., will be blocked while connected to the VPN.

This configuration prevents compromised devices located off-campus from becoming a backdoor to university networks.
