VPN (virtual private network) support

What is it?

Need to access MHC restricted tech tools from off campus? Want to enable stronger security with your campus work when working remotely? There’s a tool for that — called virtual private network (VPN). Even if you’re traveling*, you can still connect to MHC's network over the internet safely and securely to access the same resources you normally use on campus.

Our VPN provider, GlobalProtect, is installed by default on all portable laptop computers that LITS provides. It can also be installed on personally-owned Windows and macOS computers and mobile android and iOS devices.


Who can use it?

  • Current MHC students, faculty, and staff
  • Five College Students enrolled in an MHC course
  • Emeritus faculty
