VPN Access

GW's Virtual Private Network (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.

In order to access GW's VPN 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.  Here are details for logging in to GW's VPN for the first time.
