Athens is going

Over the last year we have been working to remove Athens authentication for accessing online resources and moving to Single Sign-On using your University username and password. Athens is now due to be switched off completely on 9th September.

You no longer need your Athens username and password to access online resources. You should not notice any difference when you are using resources on campus. To access any of the online resources off-campus we recommend that you use the University's VPN service. Alternatively look for the login options on the resource you want to use to find Loughborough University in the list - usually called institutional or shibboleth login. Login with your Universuty IT account username and password when prompted.

If you have any queries about the change please contact us at
