Remote Access

There may be situations when you are not on-campus, but you need access to electronic resources that are usually only available at the University.

The IT departments provides a couple of methods for accessing University computers from off-campus: Remote Desktop (RDS) and VPN access.

Remote Desktop (RDS)

You can connect to via Remote Desktop. This allows you to access the NAS, Email and UNR-specific applications as if you were on-campus.

VPN Access

If your connection needs can not be solved by connecting to, then it is possible to obtain permission to connect to the University network via VPN.

Why can't I connect directly to my office computer?

For security reasons, it is not possible for us to put the exceptions in our firewall for you to connect directly to your office computer. Instead, it is possible to remotely access, and then from within that remote session, you can connect to your office computer.
