Web Proxy Service Ends

UC San Diego is decommissioning its Web Proxy server July 13, 2017. Web Proxy is used to access the university’s online resources from off-campus. This will affect those currently using the Proxy to access UC San Diego e-journals, e-books, databases, and electronic reserve materials.

There are several reasons UC San Diego is making this change. The current Web Proxy service does not transmit network credentials securely and there are better services that provide access from off-campus. Additionally, the infrastructure for the Web Proxy service has become obsolete and doesn’t provide the overall level of security required.

This change will not affect your on-campus access.

Connect to resources via the Virtual Private Network

For undisrupted and continued access to UC San Diego resources from off-campus, you will have to connect through the UC San Diego Virtual Private Network (VPN).

For assistance with VPN connection or if you believe you need an alternate connection solution, contact your local IT support team or the Information Technology Service Desk at servicedesk@ucsd.edu or (858) 246-4357 or 6-HELP.

Contact Library Support for information about resource access options.
