KU Anywhere is an extension of the KU VPN (Virtual Private Network) service. KU Anywhere allows secure access to resources on the KU network, such as a departmental file server, from a computer that is not connected to the KU's network but is connected to the Internet.
- You do not need to use KU Anywhere if you are on the KU campus, only when you want to access KU technology resources from off campus.
- You must use multi-factor authentication (Duo) when using KU Anywhere. Learn more about multifactor authentication and Duo. Learn more about how to configure KU Anywhere to work with Duo.
