Remote Access Through VPN
Heads up! The campus VPN has changed.
Using the new GlobalProtect VPN, you will no longer need to specify a separate "library" VPN connection.
Read more about installing and using the new GlobalProtect VPN.
VPN (Virtual Private Network) is like a tunnel created between your computer or device to the campus network.
Using a VPN connection will allow your off-campus computer or mobile device to appear as if it is on the campus network. This will allow access to most library subscription databases, electronic journals, and electronic books.
Log into VPN with your UARK username and password.
Only current students, faculty, and staff may access licensed resources remotely. See the Remote Access Policy.
Connecting the Campus VPN
We recommend uninstalling the previous Pulse Secure client before installing the new GlobalProtect client.
Pulse Secure will be discontinued in summer 2019.
- Navigate to the ITS instructions for installing the VPN Gobal Connect client.
- Connect with your UARK username and password.
- Once you have an active VPN connection, you should be able to access most of our library databases, ejournals, and ebooks without any additional logins.

Note that access to some of your home or remote office networked devices may be blocked while connected to VPN. Read more about these security changes on the ITS website.
