VPN Access

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides an encrypted connection between your off-campus computer and the YC campus network.

York College Information Technology uses Palo Alto's Global Protect as the VPN service.

Members of the College community (students, faculty, and staff) have access to York College VPN group resources and can begin connecting immediately using this software.

If you have questions please contact our IT Support Team x5300 or open a support ticket.

Some applications such as HR-Assist, AEMS, PR-Assist, and rDirectory are available using our Clientless VPN portal
