Did you know that many of the computing resources available on-campus are also available off-campus? In many instances you may still be able to access information and resources you need from off-campus through your home computer. This page offers details about setting up and making proper off-campus connections to the University’s computer network through the Passport Virtual Private Network (VPN).

You cannot connect to the University's Passport VPN from on the Missouri State campus.

Passport VPN

To access on-campus resources from home, you must install and use Passport VPN in addition to using an internet connection. Internet Connections with an active VPN will be a bit slower than those without one. For this reason we recommend using only high-speed Internet connections (DSL or cable modem) when connecting through a VPN.

Technical Support

If you are not able to connect with Passport, or if you are having trouble with the Passport installation, please contact the Help Desk.
