Virtual Private Network (VPN) Clients

A VPN is a secured private network connection built on top of publicly accessible infrastructure. The Campus VPN service provides an alternative to using the proxy server for remote access to the UCLA Library and other campus resources. Campus VPN access is restricted to registered students and university employees with an active staff/faculty appointment.
 
You will be required to enroll in and authorize your login attempts using Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to connect to the Campus VPN. For additional information please see our help article here: Authenticating Using Multi-Factor Authentication on the Campus VPN
