Use VUB VPN
Most of the VUB resources require a VPN connection to access them from outside the campus, you need a VUB or a VUB partner account to connect.
You will need to contact us in order to obtain this VPN account, as NetID will NOT work!
So just send us an email describing which resource you are trying to access (put as much details as possible).
Requests typically take 24-48h to be processed by the VUB support team.
