Connecting to BU

You can connect to the BU network from off campus using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Login at or install a local VPN client as described on the IS&T site. Other information is provided at IS&T Remote Access.

Email Access

If you have an Internet connection, you can access your BU email at See IS&T Email for instructions.

You can also use a desktop client or mobile device to access your email, just as you would if you were on campus. However, these options may incur unexpected mobile connection or service fees. See the section on Telephones for more details.

Important Security Note

It is important to configure any mobile device accessing your email to require a password or other security test prior to granting access. Additionally, a phone should be configured to require a passcode if it has been idle for more than 10 minutes.
