University of Delaware students, faculty, and staff can download software licensed for their use from UDeploy.

AnyConnect VPN


  • The University of Delaware allows you to use Virtual Private Network (VPN) client software to log in from off campus to UD resources usually restricted to on-campus use. VPN access is also required for access to certain UD business systems from off-campus or an unsecured wireless network.
  • VPN software allows you to establish a secure, point-to-point connection over the Internet, in essence letting you connect to UDelNet as if you were on campus.
  • We recommend you use Cisco's AnyConnect VPN client to connect to UD, and have pre-configured versions of AnyConnect for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems. AnyConnect is also available for iOS, Android, and Kindle devices.
  • The current version of AnyConnect VPN is 4.10.07061
