Off campus access

Off campus? Vise Library uses a proxy server that will automatically determine if you are off-campus.

If you are a current CU student, use the same username and password that you use for student email. For example, if your name is Pat D. Jones, and your Social Security number is 123-44-5566, your username would be pdjones66 and your password would be PJ445566. If you are having difficulties logging in with this information, try omitting your initials from the password.

Do NOT enter your full CU email address, only the username.

If you are a student and do not know your username and password, click here and refer to the Student Login Info section. 

If you are a CU faculty or staff member, use the same username and password that you use to log on to your computer on-campus. 

If you are an employee and do not know your username and password, or if you are student and cannot log in with the above information, click here to submit a Technology Helpdesk Request.
