The Royal Holloway VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides you with a digital connection to campus, even if you’re not here. It works by routing your network traffic through the campus, giving you a Royal Holloway network address. When you’re using the VPN your computer will behave exactly like it would if you were on campus, and this allows you quick access to restricted services, like library services and your Y: drive.
At Royal Holloway you can either use the VPN though Internet Explorer, or by using a client called F5 Access. To use the VPN in Internet Explorer you will need to visit https://webvpn.rhul.ac.uk/. To use F5 Access, download the right version for your operating system from the options below, and add the server webvpn.rhul.ac.uk. You will need to log in using your College username and password. Some systems may require you to put "cc\" before your username to log in (e.g. cc\abcd123).
