Remote Access - VPN

Virginia Tech’s remote access - VPN service allows you to access Blacksburg campus university services as though you were on the Virginia Tech network, even though you may be miles or continents away.

Limiting service to university network addresses restricts the scope of exposure. For those university services that restrict access to campus network addresses, the remote access - VPN service is a way of selectively re-opening services only to known members of the university community.

Currently enrolled students are automatically authorized for remote access-VPN service. 

Faculty and staff often have remote access-VPN service bundled with their wireless service. To request service, please have your communications liaison submit an ICR.


Once you are authorized and registered for service, instructions for installing the Pulse Secure VPN software on your devices are available from
