Off-Campus Access

How to gain access to library e-resources remotely.

On-Campus Access

From University of Nicosia premises, access is open for all through the Library website and no passwords are required. 

Off-Campus Access

From outside University of Nicosia premises, you can use either the OpenAthens  or Proxy Server authentication (more instructions can be found at OpenAthens Authentication and Proxy Server Authentication sections).

This service is only available for currently enrolled/ employed University/ Intercollege students and staff.

OpenAthens vs. Proxy Server

Most of the library resources allow remote access via both authentication methods.

OpenAthens is the newer and easier method, if you remember your UNIC email credentials. However, there are some resources (just a few!) that allow access only via Proxy Server authentication. You will be notified about them with an Off-campus access note under their link on the library website.
