NKU Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Logging into VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows faculty, staff and students to access several NKU systems while off campus.

Note: Most NKU resources do not require the use of VPN.  Resources that require VPN include:

  • Network Drives (J: and K:)
  • Department Servers
  • Adobe AEM
  • Some myNKU functionality
    • Order approvals, UWL, and SAP GUI are the only functions that require VPN.  All other myNKU functions do not require VPN.
