Connecting from off-campus

  • To get to the Library's subscription databases, e-journals and e-books when you are off-campus, you will automatically be asked to log in using your NYU NetID and password.
  • If you are having trouble connecting, it may be because:
    • your NetID has not been activated. Activate your NetID 
    • You are using NYU’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) which is not compatible with on or off campus access to our resources.  Please do not use the VPN when accessing library e-resources, except if you are at NYU Shanghai, where VPN is required to access library resources from off-campus locations. 


Off-campus access is available to all NYU faculty, staff and students enrolled in degree or diploma programs. 


NYU Alumni have access to a package of premium e-resources including newspapers, magazines and journals. Information is available at:
