What is a VPN?

UNB’s Virtual Private Network (or VPN for short) provides faculty, staff and students with secure access to the UNB network over the internet, so you can access secure UNB IT services and files even when you’re not on campus.

Why should I use UNB’s VPN? 

  • It’s secure – The VPN adds an extra layer of security to your Wi-Fi connections, making it harder for hackers and cybercriminals to gain access to your device, accounts and information. 
  • It’s convenient – Once you have the VPN client downloaded (this is a one-time step), connecting is easy – just enter your UNB login ID and password and you’ll have access to UNB IT resources just as if you were on campus. 
  • It’s free –You can use UNB’s secure VPN for free on all your devices as long as you are a faculty, staff or student at UNB.
