Campus VPN Service
Individual Heavy VPN Client
The heavy client is a legacy software program available for older computers running 32 bit OS.
You will need a VPN software client installed on your computer and your University Network ID (uNID) and corresponding password to authenticate. If you have questions about your uNID or your password, call the Campus Help Desk at 801-581-4000. The client is approximately 3 MB in size.
We recommend downloading the latest client versions from our site. The VPN client software is available at no cost for the following operating systems:
Older versions of VPN clients can be chosen "at-a-glance" from the VPN grid.
UIT no longer supports VPN clients for Windows 98 or earlier and Mac OS 9 or earlier. However the clients are available; contact the Campus Help Desk at 801-581-4000, option 1.
Testing the VPN Connection
After installing the VPN client, you can test if the software is working as follows.
- Bookmark this page in a browser
- Connect to the Internet via your ISP
- Run the VPN client software
- Test your VPN connection
Using a VPN Connection with UGuest
The UGuest wireless network is bandwidth-limited. To use the campus VPN on the UGuest wireless network, open a browser. Once the UGuest login screen is up, login to the vpn client and then browse or navigate to the resources you need.
For questions or problems using the VPN, please contact the Campus Help Desk at 581-4000.
