Article SummaryThis article explains how to connect to the Secure Portal.
This article is intended for staff and students at all campuses.

The Secure Portal is a secure Algonquin College website that can be used to connect to a number of college services without installing Cisco's AnyConnect VPN client on your computer. The Secure Portal has links to many common services such as MyDesktop, your N drive, SharePoint Connect to download, and more.

Note: You cannot connect to the Secure Portal if you are connected to the college network.
Note: If you are connected with Cisco's AnyConnect, you will not be able to login to the Secure Portal. You can only use one of them at a time.

To connect to the Secure Portal

  1. Open your browser, and go to .
    • You will see a login screen.     
  2. Enter your Network username (smit0123) and password, then select Login.
    • You are now on the Secure Portal home screen. You can access all the services listed there.  

Note: Not all computer services are available through the Secure Portal. For more information, see What services need a secure connection when I'm off campus?
