VPN allows you to connect to University resources requiring a secure Washington University network connection to access. Many tools do not require a VPN connection to access them. For example, Canvas, Zoom, Teams, Box, Outlook, and Office 365 apps. For a list of WashU systems that do and do not require VPN, view WashU Systems VPN Requirements (PDF).
Some students may need to use a VPN connection if their location or country blocks standard access to WashU applications. The University expects students studying outside the U.S. to comply with the internet usage laws of the countries in which they are located.
You must have WUSTL 2FA enabled for your account in order to use VPN. For more information, see it.wustl.edu/2fa
