Information

VPN is an acronym that stands for virtual private network. By accessing a VPN, some portion of your network traffic will appear as if it is on a different network than the one you are currently connected to.

For Bowdoin, if you use Bowdoin's VPN, you authenticate with your Bowdoin username, password and 2-step authentication device which verifies who you are. Once complete, you will then have access to some Bowdoin services that are not normally available from off campus.
