The University of Chicago virtual private network (cVPN) provides faculty, students, and staff with secure access to University network resources as if you were on campus, no matter where you are in the world. cVPN is used to remotely access resources that are not available from off-campus locations.

To download cVPN, visit and log in your CNetID and password. There are detailed instructions available for Windows 10, MacOS, iOS, and Android.

Recently, cVPN was added to the list of UChicago online services and system protected by two-factor authentication. If you haven’t already signed up for 2FA, you will need to do so in order to access cVPN or download the software. Read the 2FA Overview for more information about how this service protects your information.
