We encourage you to move any files you need to access and/or share to your OneDrive for the easiest access from multiple locations and devices.

Do you need to connect to secure College resources?

Cisco Anyconnect

Cisco Anyconnect offers secure access to campus resources that would normally not be available off-campus. This VPN client uses advanced encryption and tunneling to create a private network connection to the Sheridan network over the Internet. This effectively places your remote computer directly on the Sheridan network.
