The Division of Information Technology (IT) is pleased to announce an upgraded VPN network. In order to access the upgraded network, please download the new software, Cisco AnyConnect, and enter in your GW NetID and corresponding password (your NetID is the first part of your GW email address before the @ symbol). Once you have logged in, please select to download the appropriate client. Instructions on how to set up the VPN client on different platforms can be found below.
The VPN allows remote access to many university systems and resources that are otherwise protected from off-campus access. It does this by creating a "virtual" encrypted channel from your remote location back to GW's network.
Questions? For questions or to report any problems, please contact the Division of IT at 202-994-GWIT (4948), firstname.lastname@example.org or IT.GWU.EDU. Additionally, in-person technology assistance is available at Tech Commons in the Lower Level of Gelman Library.
