About the UF VPN

The UF VPN Service is designed to allow University Faculty, Staff, and Students to securely "tunnel" into campus over other networks, such as their home internet connection, and access services as if they were on campus. It is ideal for using the UF Libraries resources from off-campus. If you are reading journal articles and searching library databases from home you'll want to install the VPN.

Install & configure the VPN

  1. Make sure you have a Gatorlink account
  2. Download the VPN software for your computer's operating system
  3. Follow the instructions to install and configure the VPN

Using the VPN & library resources

  1. Log in to the UF VPN
  2. Go to the UF Libraries home page and use all libraries resources (including databases and online journals) as if you were on campus
