Remote Access (VPN)

HSPH is providing a way to securely access our network and systems from outside of HSPH via a fee-based VPN (virtual private network) system.  VPN creates a “tunnel” from your home computer to the School. All data that is sent and received from the School is encrypted.


  • You need a current valid Harvard ID.
  • Your Phone Number and Email Address.
  • We recommend that you have a high-speed Internet connection to use the VPN.
  • Use SPH Configured Machine; or, ensure Software and Operating System are currently patched. In addition, make sure a current anti-virus/anti-malware program is installed and updated.
