A virtual private network (VPN) service is available for all staff, faculty, and graduate students. Researchers and undergraduate students can request access as needed. Utilizing the service, a computer anywhere in the world can authenticate to the College network and appear to be physically connected to the UC Davis Campus Network. The connection is encrypted end-to-end so is safe for use in normally unsafe venues (i.e. Starbucks wi-fi). For college and campus services that are restricted to local network access, this gives the traveling faculty member or the home computer user the ability to seamlessly access campus and college services. Alternatively users may choose to utilize the UC Davis Library VPN service.
