Connecting to Columbia
Members of the Columbia community can connect to the CU network from off campus using a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Refer to the CUIT VPN page for additional information and instructions on how to establish a VPN connection on your laptop before travel.
If you have an Internet connection, you can access your CU e-mail through different methods.
Go to the CUIT eMail Services page for additional information.
You can also use a desktop client or hand held device to access your e-mail, just as you would if you were here on campus. However, these options may incur unexpected mobile connection or service fees when used internationally.
See the Telephones page for more details.
Important Security Note
If you configure any mobile device to access your email, it is important to configure that device to require a password or other security test prior to granting access. A phone should be configured to require a passcode or pattern if it has been off for more than 10 minutes.
