Off - Campus Access

Off - Campus Access Mozilla Firefox


This manual describes how to use the off-campus access button. This button lets you access full-text resources without having to visit the university library website first. The button identifies you as a University of Twente student or staff member.

Before you start

  • This manual is written for the Internet browser: Mozilla Firefox.
  •  When making your way through the manual, you will often be required to perform actions. For these actions, a consistent style of writing has been used: references to text and buttons on screens are printed in italics, information that you have to enter yourself is printed in bold.


  • An active Internet connection.
  • An ICT account. This is your student or employee number with the corresponding password.
