The Office of Information Technology secures certain services so they can only be used by computers on the Rutgers Network. These services are not directly available through general Internet Service Providers (ISPs). To use these services off-campus, you must connect to the Rutgers Virtual Private Network (VPN).

A Rutgers NetID and password is required to use the VPN. You may also need to install a software VPN client, available from the University Software Portal for major operating systems.

Use the VPN now: ssl-vpn.rutgers.edu

Information on available software and configuration is provided on the Telecommunications Division Wiki.


For help with the Rutgers VPN, please contact the OIT Help Desk on your campus or email help@oit.rutgers.edu.
