Please switch off any other VPN tools when accessing college systems as this will result in you being blocked. (FYI: A VPN creates a virtual encrypted tunnel between you and a remote server operated by a VPN service. All your internet traffic is routed through this tunnel, so your data is secure from prying eyes. Best of all, your computer appears to have the IP address of the VPN server, masking your identity and location.)
- If you are having trouble with logging into college systems such as Microsoft Office 365, the VLE, eTrackr, Planet eStream or any student application please contact email@example.com and give your name and student ID.
- Once you have logged in and need help contact Systems.firstname.lastname@example.org for support and advice.
