UW licensing of Windows 10 requires that machines connect on campus once every
3 months to keep the Win10 license active. If you let the license lapse, you
won't be able to run Windows Update to keep it up to date. Aside from
not getting fixes and new features, you won't get securoty updates and could
be vulnerable to attacks by the bad guys.
If you are working off campus, I'd recommend to connect to the
at the start of each month and run Windows Update which should keep your
machine in good shape. Logging in to the VPN is the same as working on campus.
