Authorized Users of Off-Campus Access

AUC Library subscribes to a large collection of electronic resources, including electronic journals, books, indexes & abstracts, and statistical databases.

Authorized Users may access most of these resources from any Internet connection in Cairo, Egypt, or the world.


The Library's license agreements permit off-campus access to the following categories of users holding a valid AUC ID card:


  • ·  Currently enrolled AUC Undergraduate & Graduate Students
  • ·  Current AUC Faculty
  • ·  AUC Emeritus Professors
  • ·   Current AUC Full-time Staff
  • ·   Current SCE Full-time Faculty


AUC graduate students who are actively working on their thesis but not enrolled may request off-campus access for one semester. The graduate student’s thesis advisor must submit an email to stating the student’s name and AUC ID number, and confirming the student is working on his/her thesis though not enrolled. At the end of the semester, access will be terminated. Access will be restored when the student registers again.


‡ AUC faculty and staff on an approved leave-of-absence may request off-campus access for up to one year. The requester’s department head must submit an email to stating the employee’s name and AUC ID number, and confirming his/her last work date and return to work date. The department head must also email if the employee’s status or leave changes.
