IT Network & Wireless Services

The SUSLA network is a complex set of hardware (servers, routers, switches, etc.) and software used to connect computer users and various University technology resources together and facilitate knowledge and information exchange between the faculty, staff, and students.

SUSLA VPN provides employees highly secured remote access and site-to-site connections to data, voice, video, and application systems. Emulating the main office desktop experience, the Remote Access VPN enables faculty and staff to work virtually from anywhere and access campus resources (file share, printers, VoIP phones, Banner, etc.) as if they were in the office.

What are network drives, how do I access them?

  • When you register and pay for your classes, a network account is created for you to access various resources on the SUSLA network. In addition, you are licensed to use Microsoft Office 365 apps. Among those apps is OneDriveR. OneDrive data is accessible when you log on to an internet connected PC, such as a workstation in the computer lab. Your data can be stored on OneDrive without risk of accidental deletion during scheduled maintenance of campus computers. Please note that space on OneDrive is set by Microsoft and limited to 1 TB (terabyte).

Can I get to the network from home?

  • Certain users may qualify for access to the network and campus resources using Virtual Private Networking (or VPN). VPN access allows users to access campus resources as if they were actually on-campus accessing them directly. .
