EZproxy and VPN are two ways to access databases and electronic materials from a remote (off-campus) location. Current students, faculty, and staff at WFU are eligible to use EZproxy for off-campus access to databases. When accessing databases, eJournals or eBooks from our website at a remote location, you will be prompted automatically for your WFU username and password.

VPN is an alternative to EZproxy. In addition to security benefits, VPN gives you an on-campus address which will authenticate you to our databases. Wake Forest Information Systems supports and provides instructions for VPN.

More information about off-campus access, including troubleshooting recommendations, can be found on our website.  Please use this online form to report any access errors.
