UPClink is the name of the VPN service UPC offers to all staff members, faculty and research staff  and students. Thanks to this service, you can access to the FIB servers from outside the school, as well as access to any other server or service that UPC provides through this VPN.

How to use

  • For all the staff members / faculty and research staff and UPC guest personal: You have to connect to https://vpn.upc.edu where username and password are the ones you use for UPC Intranet and Racó.
  • For students and PhD:  Connect at https://vpn.upc.edu/estudiants where username and password are the ones you use for UPC Intranet and Racó.

First time you are connecting from a computer, and once the validation is successful, the portal will automatically prompt you to install a software that will allow you to connect and will make a request for access privileges.
