Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Brown University's Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows access to programs and services exclusive to users on the Brown on-campus network from off campus. A VPN connection provides a Brown IP (Internet Protocol) address at a remote location, providing the benefits of being on the Brown network. Among the key benefits of VPN are use of campus-limited web resources (including "keyed" software such as Dreamweaver, Adobe Photoshop, FlashMX, and others) and access to Library resources. 

Request this Service: 

Everyone with a Brown username and password can access VPN in one of two ways: by visiting http://vpn.brown.edu using a supported browser, or by downloading the VPN client from Brown's software page.
