Off Campus Access

Off-Campus Login Instructions (Remote Access)

Access to our resources off-campus requires logging into a proxy server. Databases recognize you as a member of FSU and allow you to download and browse articles. You can log into the off-campus access system by:

Clicking "Off Campus Login" under the services drop down in the top navigation.
Click on the link for any restricted resource, and log in at the prompt.
Remember, use your FSUID and password to login. These are the same credentials you use to log into Blackboard and your FSU webmail.

Electronic Resources: Licensing
Due to licensing restrictions by our database vendors, we are unable to provide off-campus access to non-active students and staff. If you are not currently enrolled in classes for the current semester (breaks always count as the preceding semester), are auditing a class, or are not actively employed by Florida State University, you will be unable to access these resources from off-campus.

Graduate students working on a thesis or dissertation must be enrolled in a Thesis class with at least 1 credit hour to retain off-campus access to electronic resources. Graduate students should contact their school for Thesis credit options.

There are several options for access to electronic resources:

  • If you live in Tallahassee, you may use any public computer at Strozier or Dirac to access our databases and electronic resources.
  • If you live outside of Tallahassee, you should be able to access similar databases at a public university in your area.
  • You may enroll in a Thesis class.
  • You can take any other 1 credit course at FSU to gain active status
