Cisco AnyConnect VPN

Cisco AnyConnect is MSU's VPN (virtual private network) available to Students, Faculty and Staff. The AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is required to connect to the VPN.  The client is platform and device friendly, enabling employees and students to securely connect to MSU resources anytime and from any device and location.

AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client: Download Instructions

The new VPN requires the AnyConnect client to connect.  After installing it, you will always use the AnyConnect app to connect to the VPN.  You will not need to go to network settings or use the network connection previously created for the old VPN.  Simply open the app and click connect.

First time users: If you are experiencing issues connecting for your first time, please email the Service Desk or your Departmental IT.
