Connecting from off campus (Proxy, VPN)

Before you can access UCB Library resources from off campus or via your laptop or other mobile devices, make sure you have configured your computer using one of two simple methods (Proxy Server is the quickest and easiest):

  • VPN (Virtual Private Network): After you install and run the VPN "client" software on your computer, you can log in with a CalNet ID to establish a secure connection with the campus network.
