Important Changes for Users Remotely Accessing USC Systems

As of 5:00 p.m. on January 28, the university will restrict direct access to the USC network using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). USC faculty, staff, student workers, and third parties with access to USC systems will be required to use USC's Virtual Private Network (VPN) before they remotely access their USC servers, laptops, desktops, or workstations.

For more information on using VPN to connect remotely to the USC network, see
