Use Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access campus systems and library resources

April 1, 2020

 Vice Chancellor, Administration


Dear colleagues:

I hope this note finds you all well. As we settle in to working remotely, some staff have reported having difficulty accessing campus systems such as BearBuy, Blu, and BFS. 

In order to do so, you must download and use UC Berkeley's Virtual Private Network (VPN) called GlobalProtect. Full information about the VPN, download links, and instructions are on the Information Security Office website (VPN instructions).

An added benefit of using the VPN is it also gives you access to library licensed resources like the Chronicle of Higher Education and other articles and online content.

If you have difficulty downloading or installing the VPN, contact:

IT Client Services

Thank you.


Marc Fisher
Vice Chancellor, Administration
