Camosun’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows you to securely connect to Camosun resources over the internet.
You can chat with student tech support Monday–Friday, from 8 am–4 pm.
What is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)?
A VPN provides secure access from your computer to Camosun resources, e.g., a computer lab workstation, files, and applications. Using a VPN allows you to access Camosun resources as if you were on campus.
When is the VPN Required?
The VPN is required to access only specific Camosun resources, e.g., computer lab workstations and the M: Drive remotely. You do not need to use the VPN to access the following, example, Camosun resources: myCamosun, D2L, Microsoft Office 365, and Adobe Creative Cloud.
Important: Please limit the use of the Camosun VPN for completing required course work in Camosun computer labs.
Please note: The use of these remote computer workstations is governed by the Acceptable Technology Use policy.
