Q: How do I access electronic resources from off-campus?
Answered by: Laura Sider

For current students, faculty or staff

If you are a current student, faculty or staff member at Yale university, you have access to our online content from off-campus. To do so, please download the Virtual Private Network (VPN), a program that registers your computer's IP address with the Yale network and thus recognizes you as a valid Yale user. More information about VPN and a link to the software library is available here. Please note, the software is called "AnyConnect."

You will also have to authenticate using Multifactor Authentication/Duo Security. More information about using MFA/Duo security when connecting through the VPN is available here.

Tip: If you are using a Mac be sure to disable the built-in VPN and to enable Cisco AnyConnect

If you have any questions or difficulty setting up the VPN or Multifactor Authentication/Duo Security, please contact Yale IT at 203-432-9000.

For Sponsored Identities

If you have a Sponsored Identity, you do not have VPN access to library resources.
