Virtual Private Networking

Virtual Private Networking (VPN) is a service that allows you to connect to the NJIT network from off-campus using the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of your choice. This allows you to securely access NJIT network resources from anywhere at anytime.

NOTE: Certain ISPs prohibit the use of VPN or have restrictions on its use. Please contact your ISP for information about using VPN with your Internet service before you proceed.
