If you are a Population Research Institute faculty affiliate or graduate student, you have access to our applications server. This server provides access to expensive licensed programs that you would otherwise have to purchase to use. (If you will be using a program on a daily basis we request you purchase a license and we will install that program on your workstation.) The server can also be used to access your network drives.
If you are outside of the office, you must first connect to the VPN. Instructions for connecting to the VPN in Windows can be found at Use the Penn State VPN - Windows.
