Biola’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) service allows employees and students to access on-campus services like Files, WebDev, and printers from off campus.

A VPN also creates a safe and encrypted connection while using any network. You should always use a VPN when using public or untrusted WiFi.

Biola VPN access requires the Cisco AnyConnect software to be installed and uses multifactor authentication. All staff and faculty are eligible to use this service once they accept the following service agreement during the login process. Student eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis.
