Athens is gone

The removal of Athens authentication for accessing online resources and the move to Single Sign-On using your University username and password for electronic resources has now been completed. You now 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
