Remote access to Pure

Pure is accessible only on-campus, that means logging in with a computer on the UoB Edgbaston campus only.

However, Pure users can also access Pure when off-campus by registering and using the University’s Virtual Private Network  (VPN) via the Remote Access Service. 

View full guidance on how to access and use the Remote Access Service.

Using the Remote Access Service after registration and set-up
1. In a browser, go to and login using your normal University username and password, plus the 6-digit 2FA code currently displaying in your authenticator app on your smartphone or tablet.

2. After login, click on the "UoB staff full VPN".  The VPN "f5" pop-up box  should now appear and be activated.

3. Open a browser and log into as normal.
