Direct access to the university network

Direct access to the university network can be obtained over any internet connection by using the Cisco Anyconnect VPN Client. All univeristy supplied laptop devices already have this client installed, however you can also install this on your home computer by visiting https://secure.aston.ac.uk, logging in with your normal details and then following the onscreen instructions.

Look for the eduroam WiFi connection and login with your username@aston.ac.uk and your normal university password to connect to it. 

If you are unable to connect for any reason then please raise this with the local institution's IT support at the time to see if they can assist.
