VPN on mobile devices

To connect to Clemson VPN (CUVPN) on a mobile device, please follow the steps below: 

First, make sure that you have registered for Duo Two-Factor Authentication 

Some Clemson programs and systems require that a computer be located on campus to function properly. To get around this, Clemson has implemented a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for devices that are not on campus. Clemson's VPN, called CUVPN, functions by routing all of the network traffic on the computer through a secure connection to campus. This makes the device appear to be on campus for all intents and purposes and is especially useful if a user is in a location with an unsecured network since the CUVPN creates a secure channel. To connect to CUVPN, the device must FIRST have the Cisco Anyconnect VPN Client installed. 

The process for this should look the same with some minor differences for both Android and IOS.

  1. Go to the Google Play Store(on Android) or App Store (on IOS), search for Cisco Anyconnect, and install this first. Below is what it should look like on Android (left) and on IOS (right)



  2. Open the app and add a new connection by tapping Connections>Add New VPN Connection




  3.  Optionally name the VPN, and enter cuvpn.clemson.edu as the server address



  4. Click  Done and then back on the main page, turn the Anyconnect VPN to ON.  It should automatically bring up the connection for Clemson where you will need to enter your username, password, and Duo code as usual for the VPN
