VPN Global Protect






Last updated October 13, 2023

VPN services allow students, faculty, and staff to remotely connect to the campus network and access on campus resources. In order to use VPN services, you must also have DUO Authentication set up.

VPN access is only available to current UTEP students and employees. Also, if UTEP security policies are violated while VPN is in use, VPN access will be terminated.
