WHY IS OFF CAMPUS ACCESS DIFFERENT?

When on campus, you are recognised as being on the Griffith University network, allowing access to databases and publisher websites.

Off campus, you are not automatically recognised as being on the Griffith University network. We use technologies to allow you access and you should be automatically directed to the appropriate authentication method for that resource.

If you are experiencing issues, the troubleshooting tips below may help.
