To use VPN, new users will first need to request Duo by logging into their RUNet Account Management web site and clicking Manage Your Account and Request a Duo Account for use with VPN and following the prompts.  Once Duo has been requested, users will receive an enrollment email from Duo Security within 24 hours.  


VPN and ways to connect

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is software you run on your computer, mobile device or in a standard Web browser to connect securely to the campus network from over the Internet. Because VPN gives your computer a Rockefeller University network IP address, you can also access third party resources (such as journals and databases, for example) to which Rockefeller subscribes or has a site license. 

Rockefeller VPN services offers three connection options. 

  1. via Desktop/Laptop computer
  2. via Mobile Device
  3. via Web Browser
