Off Campus Access

What is it?

EZProxy is a remote access service. This remote access service:

  • Provides internet authentication for Alfaisal University students, faculty and staff
  • Confirms that you are a valid Alfaisal University member and enables access to most library resources
  • The remote access service will not permit access to resources only available in campus libraries, as noted by the symbol

Who needs it?

Use the remote access service if any of situations below apply to you:
  • You are currently affiliated with Alfaisal University but use a commercial Internet
  • You are currently affiliated with Alfaisal University and need to access our resources from outside the University.

Note: Some employers use security measures that restrict Internet access. If your employer is one of these, you may be unable to use the Alfaisal University remote access service with your web browser. In most cases this can be remedied. Contact your system administrator.

What it does

The remote access server does two things:
  • Validates you as a current student, faculty or staff of Alfaisal University by use of an assigned name and password.
  • Acts as a gateway to resources that are licensed or otherwise restricted to Alfaisal University.

How you use it

If you click on a link to a resource, you will get a Remote Access for Alfaisal University Faculty, Staff, and Students screen. You can use your campus username and password to login. Questions about remote access service can be emailed to Ask A Librarian

Please note that some resources are unavailable off-campus, either due to licensing terms or requiring different methods of access.
