Web Based Virtual Private Network (MyVPN)
https://myvpn.fgcu.edu is a web-based VPN connection that will provide access to university resources from any location with an Internet connection and an Internet browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari).
For specific information on setting up your MyVPN, as well as accessing Banner, Network Shares or to Remotely Control your desktop computer, please visit our Knowledge Base:
When using MyVPN, please take proper security measures on your home computer before connecting to FGCU resources. Install all updates for your operating system, have an updated antivirus application installed, and a firewall enabled. If you don't, your computer is at risk for being infected with a virus, worm, or other malware, which might prevent you from finishing your tasks, and put your information at risk.
Note: Limited access to FGCU resources may result if accessing the VPN via a personal device. A compliancy check is performed when logging into the VPN that determines whether a FGCU or personal device is being used and safeguards FGCU resources accordingly. Access ITS KB > MyVPN for Remote Terminal Session to learn more.
