The HKUVPN (Virtual Private Network) Gateway (called HKUVPN) is a channel for accessing the Campus Network when staff, students and departmental account holders are outside the University network. This service is available to current staff and students which supports a secure connection for them to access the electronic resources, licensed web resources and faculty intranets in the same way as if they are within the University.
With effect from 4 January 2016, 2-factor authentication (2FA) by making use of HKU Portal UID/PIN and a one-time password is required for accessing the HKUVPN service. You can register to use 2FA through the online form-
- Staff: https://www.its.hku.hk/2fa/staff-register
- Student/Department Account Holders: https://www.its.hku.hk/2fa/student-dept-register
Staff (except visiting, honorary and hourly-paid staff who can use alternate email address only) can choose to receive the token code either through a registered alternate email address or a Mobile App.
Students and departmental account holders will receive the token code via their registered alternate email address.
