Remote (Off-campus) Access
【Remote access service】

TUMSAT provides its students and faculty with remote access service so that they can access the e-resources (electronic journals and bibliographic databases) to which the university subscribes while at home and on business trips under the same conditions as those set for access on the premises of the university. You will need your Kaiyodai-ID to use this service.

*The VPN function is available to all students in the undergraduate 3rd-grade and above, including graduate students.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused to those who are in the undergraduate 2nd-grade or younger. (2022/4/15).

【Qualified users】

Your Kaiyodai-ID is indicated on the Kaiyodai-ID notice (which provides your ID, password and other information).
The part before “@” of your TUMSAT e-mail address constitutes your Kaiyodai-ID.

【Cautions 】
You must use the TUMSAT internal information system in compliance with the laws, regulations and the rules set by TUMSAT.
Please manage your password carefully to keep it secret from others.

◆Cautions and prohibitions regarding the use of electronic journals and others◆
Please use the electronic journals and databases in line with the following rules:
For the electronic journals and databases, you can only print out and download theses that are truly necessary for your research and learning, in principle.
If you act in violation of this basic rule and if that act is deemed to be an unfair use of the journals/databases, access might be suspended across the entire university.
Therefore, please never commit the following acts:
  • Downloading a large number of theses automatically or manually within a short length of time.
  • Downloading all the theses included in one volume of a specific magazine.
  • Copying or reprocessing a downloaded thesis.
  • Distributing a downloaded thesis to a third-party.
Please use the remote access service in compliance with the rules as described above.
