I think you have to be a UC student. If you are, check out

I think they use a PPTP VPN, so you need to download and install pptp for
Linux. Depending on UC's arrangements, you might also need to compile
a kernel module for MPPE encryption if you have a kernel older than 2.6.15.

Once you've done all that, I've used a tool called kvpnc for KDE to
setup my connection to the ANU DCS wireless, which I think is very similar
to UC's. Check out http://home.gna.org/kvpnc/
