NKU Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Logging into VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides a secure internet connection for faculty, staff and students when you are not on campus.


How do I connect to my drives and other software?

You can gain access to NKU resources from your personal computer in two ways.

  • Use VMWare Horizon to launch one of NKU’s Virtual Machines (VM) 
  • Map your network drives manually.



Note: Most NKU resources do not require the use of VPN. Resources that require VPN include, but are not limited to:

  • Virtual Machines 
  • Network Drives Secure 
  • Systems (such as SAP GUI)
