Vault Campus Authentication Options

Vault Campus supports multiple types of authentication, allowing members of approved educational institutions to seamlessly access their Vault Campus content. A summary of how each type of authentication works follows.



IP-based authentication is designed to give users direct access to Vault Campus, bypassing username and password login. If an institution has a static IP address or range of IP addresses through which it connects to the Internet, IP authentication can provide easy and secure access to the full feature set of Vault Campus.



Any institution using EZproxy as its authentication system can utilize this same tool to authorize access to Vault Campus. After a simple setup process, educators and/or students can access Vault Campus by using the same credentials that they use to log in to the campus-wide EZproxy system.



Referrer authentication provides institutions with a simple way to identify users from a specific institution based on a URL and then automatically route them to Vault Campus.


If your institution is interested in implementing any of these authentication features, please contact the Vault Campus Technical Support team to learn about specific setup requirements for each option.
