Off-campus access

Access the University's network, services and resources

The majority of the Library’s electronic resources can be accessed from off-campus by logging in with your University username and password.

If you begin from Library Search or our Databases A to Z, they will provide further information about logging in:

They will also inform you if you require a different login method, either a Special username and password or the use of VPN.

The Virtual Private Networking (VPN) service also allows you to access the University’s network and secure services when you are off-campus.”

Halls of Residence

The University's Halls of Residence internet service is provided by Hornet. You can also access Hornet in private student accommodation.

Working away from the University

The remote working pages give instructions for accessing various IT services while:

  • working from home
  • working remotely i.e. working whilst visiting another institution or from a remote University site (NHS sites etc)
  • working wirelessly on campus

A welcome presentation is available to help Distance Learners learn about Library resources.
