Off-campus access

If you are having difficulty accessing material off campus that you can usually see on campus, it may be that you need to log in as a member of Royal Holloway. Here are three ways to log in while off-campus:

  1. Use CampusAnywhere (VPN).

  2. Go through the library portals such as LibrarySearch or the Library Subject Guides
    (These will often prompt you to log in using your College username and password.)

  3. Use the "via your home institution" or "via Shibboleth" button on the e-resource homepage, and select Royal Holloway in the list of institutions.*
    (This should direct you to enter your College credentials and log in.)

*Please note that you should not use the e-resource’s own username and password box, as this is for individual subscribers. Also do not select Athens, AthensDA or OpenAthens options, as these are not used by the College.

Step 3 example:

Take Jstor as your regular e-resource. After clicking 'Login' in the top right-hand corner of the homepage, click 'Find My Instituton'.


Type 'Royal Holloway' into the search bar on the left, and click 'Login' when it pops up in the results.


You should now be able to access your resource.
