Off - Campus Access

Off Campus Access

If you're not on-campus, but need to use the Library's electronic resources, you'll need to authenticate yourself as a UTEP student.

1. Connect to UTEP Library's Proxy Server

  • follow the prompt to sign in using your UTEP username and password before accessing a database or e-book
  • sessions expire quickly
  • you will be prompted to authenticate (log in) every time you access a protected resource (i.e., databases)

2. Connect to UTEP's Campus VPN (recommended!)

  • VPN= Virtual Private Network
  • gives your device a UTEP IP address; sites will 'think' you're at UTEP when you're connected
  • log in once, stay connected while you work

See tutorial UTEP VPN for Windows  or  UTEP VPN for Macs   NOTE: Global VPN required for MAC OS as of 10/20/2016.
