Connect to e-resources

Off-campus access privileges

Most of our electronic resource license agreements grant access to current Stanford faculty, staff, students, and approved affiliates only.

Graduating students

Your SUNet ID will remain valid for 120 days after graduation. This will allow you access to many (but not all) licensed electronic resources while on campus and on the Stanford network; however, off-campus access to electronic resources stops when you graduate.

Sponsored SUNet ID holders

If you have a Sponsored SUNet ID and have trouble accessing licensed electronic resources, please contact your department administrator to confirm that your sponsorship includes off-campus access. If you would like to sponsor somebody for off-campus electronic resources access, please refer to the Stanford UIT Sponsorship page for more information.


The Stanford Alumni association offers members off-campus access to a few databases. Please contact the Stanford Alumni Association if you have questions about these or other membership benefits.
