New off-campus access software for UC Network

UC faculty and staff who need access to private or restricted areas on the UC network from off-campus locations will need to download and install new software before Fri. March 1.

What is the SSL VPN?

The Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) allows authorized users access to private or restricted services on the UC network from off-campus locations. You will need to log into the VPN if you are off-campus and need access to a departmental file server or restricted service, for example.

What is the new software?

IT@UC is pleased to announce a new software solution for the Virtual Private Network (VPN). Cisco AnyConnect will replace the Pulse Secure client and the web-based SSL VPN as the university's official VPN connection to UC's network from off-campus. AnyConnect brings the latest VPN technologies as well as an easier client installation process.

How do I access the new VPN software?

As with Pulse Secure, the AnyConnect VPN can be accessed either via the web or through a client application installed on a computer.

Visit to access:

  • The web-based version of AnyConnect.
  • The AnyConnect client application installers.
    • Download and install the AnyConnect client applications on your device(s) from on or off-campus.

NOTE: Access to UC’s Network via the AnyConnect VPN is available off-campus only.

For how-to instructions, view the AnyConnect download and installation instructions in the IT@UC Knowledge Base.

When will I need to change?

The AnyConnect solution will become the official VPN solution for the university on Friday, March 1, 2019. Pulse Secure will no longer be available, and the will redirect to on Friday, March 1, 2019.

We encourage all students, faculty and staff who use VPN to make the switch to the new AnyConnect VPN prior to Friday, March 1, 2019, to take advantage of its new features and to avoid any disruption in service.
