Off Campus Access to Library's Resources

Off-campus access to the Library's licensed databases and electronic journals is available only to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. There are two ways to access these resources from off-campus:

1. VPN (Virtual Private Network)

This method is for high-speed Internet and broadband users.

  • Download and install VPN on your computer - instructions are available on the IT Help Desk's
    VPN Information Page
  • After installation, connect to the Library Resources (Transporter) VPN before you access the online databases/journals. A UCCS username and password is required for logging into the VPN.
  • The Library Resources (Transporter) VPN is maintained by the UCCS IT Help Desk. For any questions/comments about the VPN, please contact the IT Help Desk at 719-255-3536.

2. Dial-Up Configurations

NOTE: The UCCS Dial-Up Service, also known as the Dial-Up Modem pool, has been discontinued. If you have questions about this service or this decision, please contact the UCCS Information Technology Help Desk at 719-255-3536.
