2. Not in Oxford? Not a problem.

Oxford is part of eduroam, an international federation of academic institutions which allows its users to visit other organizations and use the same username and password as they would use at their home institution. The eduroam service is accessed via the OUCS Remote Access account and Oxford members planning on visting other participating institutions should make sure that their eduroam setup is working correctly in Oxford before leaving. In addition to eduroam the OUCS Remote Access account gives you access to the Virtual Private Network (VPN) service, which allows you to access to restricted resources from outside the campus network. If you are a University member who is going to be working away from Oxford make sure that you register for an OUCS Remote Access account before leaving in order to preserve your access to the restricted electronic library services such as TDNET, OxLIP and WebSPIRS.
