Safe Connect/NAC

SafeConnect is a NAC (network access and compliance tool) to help ensure that computers connected to the Villanova network are patched and have protection from malicious software. All residence hall computers accessing the Villanova network must authenticate through this system before they can access the network.

Connecting with SafeConnect

In order to connect your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer to the network, you must install the SafeConnect Policy Key. Without this key installed, you will be directed to the installation page with installation instructions whenever attempt to visit a non-University website. You can find more information in our SafeConnect FAQ section.
