Off Campus Access Login Instructions

Off-campus access to Library databases is limited to students, faculty, and staff. To log in to the library databases from off campus, click on the database name you wish to access on the Periodicals and Electronic Resources page. Your username and password is the same as your COAST username and password.

​Important Update:

As of April 16 2019, Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Is now required for all off-campus access. This involves sending an authentication code to your email, SMS, or certain mobile apps and devices. see Setting up Two-Factor Authentication for more information or a FAQ on 2FA.

Every OCC student's username and password is automatically generated once they register for classes. The student login information is sent to their email address provided on the admission application. If this information was not received or was lost, contact the Answer Center at (714) 432-5072 or Admissions and Records at to have it re-sent.

For further assistance, call the Reference Desk at 714-432-5900 or email us.
