Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Virtual private network (VPN) is a technology that establishes a private or secure network connection within a public network, such as the Internet. A VPN connection is required to access resources that are restricted to ECU students and staff. A VPN lets you virtually plug your computer into the university's network. With a VPN active, it is as if your personal computer is locally attached to the university.
Students and staff looking to connect a personal laptop or a mobile device to our VPN are encouraged to use one of our easy setup guides. If your device is not listed or you run into configuration issues try one of our alternative setup guides.
