Q: How do I use VPN?
Answered by: Laura Sider

If you are a current student, staff or faculty member, you have access to our online content from off-campus using Yale's Virtual Private Network (VPN). The VPN temporarily extends the Yale network to your computer's IP address through a secure channel, registering you as a valid Yale user during the session.

You can download the VPN program " Cisco AnyConnect" from the Yale Software Library here.

Tip: If you are using a Mac be sure to disable the built-in VPN and to enable Cisco AnyConnect.

When connecting to VPN, you will also have to authenticate using Multifactor Authentication/Duo Security. More information is available here.

Once you log into the VPN, you maintain a Yale session for the day. If you have logged into VPN and still cannot access Yale resources, you may need to clear your browser's cache and cookies. Instructions on how to do this can be found here.

More information about off-campus access is available here.

If you have any questions or difficulty setting up the VPN, please contact Yale IT at 203-432-9000.

Please note: Those with a sponsored identity will not have off-campus access to our electronic content.
