VPN Remote Connection

Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows you to make a secure remote connection to EUI's private network (intranet) by authenticating yourself as an EUI user.

Once you have connected to EUI's network via VPN, you will be able, amongst others, to remotely connect to your office computer or access your Personal (G:), Web (W:) and other Shared Areas [1] like if you were connected on campus.

The EUI has adopted the Cisco AnyConnect (Secure Mobility) Client as means of its VPN connection:



Download, Installation and Configuration


Please note that the Cisco AnyConnect Client software is ONLY for use on personally-owned computers/devices: your laptop, home PC, tablet or any computer/device which you have exclusive access to. It must NOT be installed on a public computer/device, at another university/institution or any other organisation (e.g. Internet Café).

Depending on your Operating System, there are different installation files and configuration methods: please select as appropriate (note that you may be prompted for a valid EUI account, Apple ID or Google account in order to download the client):
