Updating myVPN Login Credentials

If your BCIT login or password changes, your myVPN client will automatically prompt you for new credentials. If this does not happen or if you wish to update your credentials manually, follow the steps below.

Login change, July 5, 2021

BCIT is changing the way you login to BCIT systems. This change will enable BCIT to access new cloud-based software in the future.

You can already use your new login for myVPN (your primary BCIT email address and your current password), so we recommend updating it now.

Logging in to BCIT Tools and Systems
  1. Double-click the myVPN client, labeled “Virtual Intranet Access” on your desktop.
