OpenAthens for Remote Access

All about off-campus authentication using OpenAthens

OpenAthens Current Issues

We are less than a week into our OpenAthens roll out and have a few issues to report.

Welcome to OpenAthens!

OpenAthens is an identity and IP-based authentication system that provides access to our licensed online resources via single sign-on (SSO) technology. OpenAthens offers a more secure and reliable experience for our remote users, without the “proxy error,” “cache error.” “upstream error” and other annoyances that have proliferated in the last few years.

On-campus users will still navigate directly to resources without a login.

Off-campus users will see the familiar campus login page and will use their UARK email and password for access to resources.
