Access Campus Resources from Home

  • If you have a campus-owned Windows or Macintosh laptop, take your laptop home
  • If you have a campus-owned Windows desktop, take your desktop computer home. If you have a Mac Desktop, please contact the Help Desk at (320) 363-2228 or submit to the Support Portal for alternative options.
  1. Before unhooking your computer, please power the computer off and on, and log onto the machine. This is necessary to make sure all the required settings are in place before you leave campus.
  2. Pack up your computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, all the cables attached to each of them, and the blue/grey ethernet cable. A video showing how to disconnect and re-connect your computer can help if you're unsure about how to connect it.
  3. A document prepared by IT Services can help connect your computer to your home network.
  • You can access network resources from home using VPN on a CSB/SJU-owned machine. This will not work on your home machine. VPN enables your campus-owned computer to access the same network resources as you would on campus (home directory (M: drive), department share (O: drive), Banner, print to network printer, etc.).  It is important to note that VPN access is dependent on your home Internet provider. If you are connecting over a hotspot or satellite connection, the experience will be slower than being on campus. See VPN Connection instructions or contact the Help Desk at 320-363-2228,  [email protected], or the Support Portal.


You can choose to forward your calls from your office phone to another phone. See Instructions for Receiving Calls Remotely for further information.
