Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Xavier faculty and staff can use the VPN to access on-campus only materials from off-campus. These include materials posted on Nexus as well as file stored on your personal (X) and department or group shared (Q) folders.

Simply login to with your normal username and password.
Then use the "Network Connect" (press start) function.
After that, Nexus can be opened in a browser just as if you were on campus.
