Off-campus access

Our extensive collections of electronic journals, databases and e-books remain available to you 24/7 on and off-campus.

If you wish to gain access to e-resources off-campus, you do not need to install VPN; these can be accessed using the browser based Primo VPN.

You will need to:

  1. Sign in to with your Aberystwyth University (AU) username and password. You must keep the browser open while you work. 
  2. Sign in to with your AU username and password - you will be prompted to do this after connecting to Primo VPN
