Use the UF VPN Service

If you don't have VPN software on your computer, use your Gatorlink ID.

GatorLink Account

If you don't have a Gatorlink account or your Gatorlink ID doesn't work, use your 14-digit library card number (located under the barcode on your Gator-1 card), or your 8 Digit UFID Number (include dash).

UFID or Library Number

Connecting From Off-Campus

Off-Campus access to library-licensed e-Journals, research databases and e-resources is limited to current UF students, staff, and faculty.

Virtual Private Network

Setting up the UF VPN is recommended if you are connecting from off-campus since it provides the smoothest and most secure way to access the UF Libraries e-resources.

To log on using your Gatorlink or library card number:

  • Enter your account username or number with password and click the Login button.
  • Ensure that your Web browser is set to accept "cookies". Check your browser's options or preferences settings.
  • Health Sciences Center Library card activation.
