Queen's has migrated Campus VPN services to Fortinet's FortiClient VPN. For information on how to get started, please visit the FortiClient VPN Tutorials page.

Enterprise Remote Access

There is often a need to access Queen’s resources when working or learning from home or while travelling. Most of these resource can be accessed using your internet browser as if you were on campus, but in some cases, we need to be able to connect to resources that are restricted to campus without actually being on campus. For these instances, Queen's provides secure Enterprise Remote Access services that are available to all faculty, staff and students of Queen's University.

Which of these services you use will depend on what you need to access. Please visit the Connecting, Collaborating, and Teaching Remotely page for a detailed list of how to access various campus resources.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

A virtual private network (VPN) allows you to access restricted resources from off campus. There are two types of VPN service:

  1. The PeopleSoft VPN, which lets authorised users connect to the PeopleSoft administrative applications through their web browser.
  2. The Campus VPN, which requires users to download VPN software to access Windows fileshares (e.g. H: or I: drive), EDRMS/QDocs, GE Picture Perfect, and Tableau.

Web Proxy

The web proxy service allows you to connect to Library resources from off campus by logging in to a proxy server accessed through your web browser.

If you are already using a VPN, you can also access Library resources through it.
