​HOW TO ACCESS REMOTE DESKTOP AND VPN​

One Time Password (OTP) keys for remote access to the UHN network will be phased out by the end of December. For any questions about the use of OTP keys moving forward, please email  DigitalResearch@uhn.ca.

For UHN staff to connect to the research network remotely, please use VPN (Virtual Private Network) where possible:

  • For more information about how to set this up, please go to the  Working Remotely with VPN page (uhnresearch.ca > NEWS > Working Remotely with VPN)
  • Note: When connecting through this method, you may lose connection to local resources such as your printer at home

For non-UHN users of UHN applications and services, please await instructions from your UHN contact once an alternative solution has been determined.
