The purpose of this site is to provide remote access information to the faculty, staff, and students of Johns Hopkins. There are many different remote access tools that provide connectivity to internal resources from offsite locations. It is always best to first contact your local IT support for guidance on selecting the most appropriate method of connecting remotely.
Hybrid Work Model
A hybrid work model is a combination of remote workers and an in-person component. This scenario introduces technology and office space challenges. If you have multiple employees sharing the same office space, you may consider replacing the traditional desktop PC with a laptop and docking station. Current standard hardware solutions are available on the Future Tech site. Work from home bundles are available at the JH Tech Store. You may also contact your local PC support staff for assistance. Software may be purchased through the IT Service Catalog.

3 Ways to Remotely Access Johns Hopkins Resources:
The Web (from a computer’s browser or smartphone)
Pulse Secure VPN
MyCloud (from the myJH portal or your desktop if installed)
Many resources at Johns Hopkins are restricted to the campus network, which means you must use the Pulse Secure VPN or MyCloud to connect to them. Each of these solutions may have prerequisites such as use of Azure multi-factor authentication (MFA), installation of a Citrix receiver client, or the installation of our Pulse Secure VPN client.
