The VPN service at UNC Charlotte is designed to allow faculty and staff to connect to the UNC Charlotte network from off-campus. When you use the VPN service, your computer will appear to other systems on campus that you are also on-campus. You will have a UNC Charlotte VPN IP address instead of the one you use at home.

The VPN Service is split into two main profiles.

  • All faculty and staff can use the VPN to get access to internal websites via HTTP and HTTPS and to mount the H:\, J:\ and S:\ drives. 
  • The vpn.uncc.edu/banner profile is for the faculty and staff that need INB access to Banner. When you contact your direct supervisor to request this Banner INB access, part of this request will enable Banner INB remote access. Once you have this access, you will use vpn.uncc.edu/banner for your VPN access. This VPN profile provides all of the basic faculty and staff access and Banner INB access.

Additional access can be granted for specialized department needs and for remote access to a specific workstation. Contact the ITS Service Desk if this additional access is needed. 

Use of this service is conditional on compliance with the University's Computing Network Policies.
