VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It enables you to connect to UCSD's network as if you were on-campus.
How to Use UCSD VPN
Instructions on how to install and use VPN are located here: http://blink.ucsd.edu/technology/network/connections/off-campus/VPN/index.html.
Common Uses of UCSD VPN
Network Licensed Software
For network-licensed software (ex. MATLAB), logging into UCSD VPN allows the software to access the network license at UCSD while being off-campus.
Unregistered Machine Needing Wired Internet Access
Logging into UCSD VPN will allow users to gain full network access during their VPN session. This is especially useful for short-term guests who need wired Internet. You can use your AD credentials to login to UCSD VPN.
Guests should use our account request form to request a temporary account.
