Connecting from Off-Campus: VPN or Proxy Server

The UCLA Library's online subscription resources can be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCLA, students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using a virtual private vetwork (VPN) or a proxy server: 

  • RECOMMENDED: Virtual Private Network (VPN): A program you can download and install, or use the built-in version on many computers or mobile devices. VPN software must be logged on manually before you access a restricted site, but works for all programs on your computer. It stays connected until you log off.
  • Proxy Server: A simple browser setting which will automatically divert you to a UCLA logon page when you first access a restricted site.

If you still need help, you can contact the UCLA IT Support Center at (310) 267-4357 or They provide 24/7 phone support.
