Wireless & VPN Access

The university offers three main wireless services to the GW community:

  • GWireless is the primary wireless service for GW students, faculty, and staff. 
  • Eduroam is a global wireless network available for GW and members of participating institutions. 
  • GWConnect is the primary wireless service for GW visitors and guests. 

VPN Access

Most of the networked licensed applications such as Matlab, Comsol and ProE are only accessible to the GW network to ensure compliance with our license agreements. If you use the university's remote access VPN, you can run these applications remotely. Faculty and staff can use the VPN client to access home, departmental and research shares remotely.  All computers managed by us come preconfigured with GW Remote Access VPN. Contact GW IT if you have VPN connectivity issues.
