Message to students regarding VPN access

12 August 2020

Dear Student, 

The University has decided to suspend VPN access for all students with immediate effect. This is in light of increased cybersecurity awareness during the lockdown period. 

This will not affect the portal. 

Should you need access to the VPN to access resources that are not generally available without VPN access, please follow the link below to apply.

Kind regards
