Update my computer


  1. If you are working remotely on a UND-owned machine, you will first need to connect to the UND Campus VPN:  GlobalProtect VPN 
    • To make sure your system is secure and up to date, we ask that you connect to the campus VPN at least once a week. Connecting to the campus VPN will configure your device to receive updates directly from Microsoft.
