Information about Athens
OpenAthens (also known as Athens) is a user authentication service, enabling Courtauld students and staff to access online resources off-campus.
For help regarding your Athens account you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The OpenAthens login area may appear differently on each online resource. To access an online resource using OpenAthens:
- Look for a login area.
- If there is the option to login via OpenAthens, select this option. If OpenAthens is not listed, look for ‘Institutional Login’ and then OpenAthens or Shibboleth
- If prompted, select ‘The Courtauld’
- Enter your Courtauld network credentials (Courtauld email & password)
- OpenAthens will then redirect you back to the online resource
Alternatively you can also link directly to resources by signing in first at the OpenAthens portal
