Off-Campus Access

If you are off campus:

To access many of our resources that are not available to the general public, you must use VPN/Cisco Anyconnect to access them.


If you are on-campus:

Be sure you are connected on the campus network, either via ResNet in the residence halls or campus apartments, or the UCSD-PROTECTED Wifi Network elsewhere on campus. Do not use the UCSD Guest Wifi network; it will not connect you to our electronic resources.
