VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Students, faculty, and staff can now connect securely to the NU campus network from off-campus using a VPN (VIrtual Private Network).

  1. Enroll in MultiFactor Authentication (MFA): https://mfareg.northeastern.edu/
    • If you have already enrolled, you do not need to repeat this step
  2. To download the VPN Client, please use the following link: https://vpn.northeastern.edu
    • On the VPN download page, log in with your Northeastern University credentials

Please go to http://www.northeastern.edu/its/howto/vpn for more instructions and details.

You must use the VPN to connect to on-campus computers via Remote Desktop, VNC, and similar protocols.

This service is provided and supported by NU ITS. Use your NU (not COE) credentials to connect to the VPN.
