Q: Why are my netid and VPN access being turned off?

I've received an email telling me I can no longer have a netID and VPN access to Yale library resources.

Answered by: Jenn Nolte

VPN access is automatically removed when an individual's Yale affiliation no longer qualifies for VPN access (for example, when a student becomes an alumnus).

Excluded individuals with an active M&P or faculty sponsor may request access to VPN when an exception is deemed necessary. Please contact ITS directly with these requests.

Recent graduates

You will retain VPN access to the library's electronic resources in the months immediately following graduation. To use the library's electronic resources on public terminals in Sterling Memorial Library, you may register for library access at the Sterling Memorial Library service desk.
