How can I connect to Gitlab (that is installed on university server) from SmartGit?

My university uses Gitlab that is installed on a university server. I am able to log in and use that Gitlab server through the web. How can I use it with SmartGit?

This is a vague question.
Do you have network connectivity from wherever you are to the Gitlab instance that is installed on a university server?
Best test would be trying to ping the FQDN(https:///) #Ping
does the URL load on the browser?

Once network connectivity is confirmed you can move forward

I found the answer. The free version of SmartGit does not support custom Gitlab servers.
