Step 1

Before connecting to VPN, remove your previous UR VPN connections (profiles) in other VPN applications or your device’s built-in VPN client. If you previously used another VPN client to connect to the University network and do not use it to connect to other non-UR networks, uninstall it from your device.

Enroll in Duo two-factor authentication, which is required for VPN access. If you have already enrolled in Duo, skip to step 3.

  • Enrollment tutorials and more information about Duo are available on theĀ Duo website.
