Connecting remotely to the College network and voicemail

Connecting remotely to the College network with a VPN

VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to connect to the College’s network from offsite/remotely. With a VPN account, and the installation of VPN client software on your computer, you have a secure, encrypted connection to the College's network.

Instructions on how to install and connect to the VPN are available on the Knowledge Base under “Network & Connectivity” > “Virtual Private Network (VPN)”. The same instructions are available in the documents below:

Further assistance with VPN access is available from the ITS Help Desk through the self-serve page, by email to helpdesk@georgebrown.ca, or by calling +1 416-415-5000, ext 4357.
