How do I access content available to my University or other organisation?

Your organisation may have access to some content on Cambridge Higher Education. We always recommend contacting your librarian first about what content your organisation has access to or to find out the preferred access methods for your organisation.

The most common method of access is via IP recognition. If your organisation has enabled access through IP recognition, you simply need to access at the correct location within the IP range, and your organisation's content will automatically be available.

You can verify you have access by clicking on 'Access provided by', next to the Register / Log In button.

Accessing via Institutional Login

Institutional Login allows you to log in using your institutional account. If your organisation has not requested their account to be configured to use Institutional Login, then this login method will result in an error.

Using Seamless Access

We support Seamless Access which can be detected if you have logged into your institution from other websites. You can click the Seamless Access button if your previous login was detected and avoid entering your username and password. Alternatively, if no previous session was detected you can click the button to be taken to the regular institution login page.
