Proxy Server

Campus ITS plans to discontinue the Proxy Server starting in July.  Accessing library resources is still possible using the VPN - it is available now so you can switch immediately to using it. Check out our online guide if you need instructions for finding and removing the proxy settings.  If you need instructions on setting up the VPN, please check out our page for VPN instructions.


Macintosh Users

Pros: Easy to set up.  Only requires changing one setting in your browser.

Cons: Users located inside non–UCSD institutions (such as non–UCSD hospitals, Salk, etc.) with high network security may not be able to use the UCSD Proxy server. If you are in such a facility, check with your IT support unit before trying to connect to the UCSD network.
