Introduction

This page explains the steps for connecting to Biola VPN on a Mac or a Windows PC.

VPN allows authorized users to connect to Biola's local, on-campus network from off campus.

Before beginning this procedure, you must have an active VPN account and install Cisco AnyConnect (How to Install Cisco AnyConnect (Biola's VPN)).

All staff and faculty VPN accounts are active by default. Non-employee (students, alumni, etc.) access must be requested by an employee. This access can be requested through the access request form here.
