Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a convenient way to access network-restricted resources on the campus network that would otherwise be unavailable from off campus. In some countries, access to the University’s VPN service may be limited or restricted. To connect to the BU VPN you’ll need to install the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client.  For Medical Campus resource access, please see the BUMC VPN instructions.

Duo Two-Factor Authentication is required of all clients when logging into the VPN.

Note: We no longer support built-in VPN programs on Mac or Windows, as they are incompatible with the Two-Factor VPN.

Below are the installation files and instructions that will walk you through downloading, installing, and launching the appropriate VPN client. Please choose the correct operating system:
