Temporary VPN Access for Full-Time Faculty and Staff

As a response to the university going remote due to COVID-19 closures, Information Technology is temporarily allowing full-time faculty and staff the ability to download the VPN without having to request it first. Please carefully read the notes on the download page prior to downloading the VPN.

For special requests like student employees or consultants, supervisors must fill out the VPN Request Form below.

The New School operates a virtual private network (VPN) to enable faculty, staff, and other authorized individuals to access internal computer systems from off campus. Because granting remote access to sensitive information resources entails increased risk, such access must be approved by an Information Trustee as defined in The New School Information Security Policy.

PLEASE NOTE: 

VPN is only required for the following applications or resources:

  • Tableau

  • Banner System Access (Admin Pages)

  • S-Drives (Network Share Drives)

  • Perceptive

  • Files on your office computer

IF YOU DO NOT NEED THESE SERVICES, THEN YOU DO NOT NEED THE VPN.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR VPN:

  • Windows 10 or higher
  • Max OSX v10.12 Sierra or higher
  • iOS 9.0.0 or higher
  • Android 4.1 or higher
