The UIS VPN Service
The University offers a free VPN service.
The VPN service is a way of connecting your device to the University of Cambridge Data Network (CUDN) from a remote location. Using the VPN not only is your device connected to the CUDN but it appears to actually be located on the CUDN.
This means that you can access resources that normally require you to be at the University, using a CUDN connected device. Examples of such services include:
- Departmental or College resources
- Some restricted access websites.
See the UIS VPN website for further details and instructions on how to configure your device to use it: http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/vpn
