The most common issue students have accessing any online resource requiring authentication is using a browser with expired cache information. Clearing your entire cache, including all cookies and site data, will typically resolve most authentication issues, including access to email in a web browser, Canvas, the Group Study Room Reservation System, and UW's Mobile Print system. If you continue to have issues accessing resources, please see the links below for additional troubleshooting information, or call the Campus Library's Computing Help Desk at 425.352.3145 during all the hours the Library is open.

Land Acknowledgment: The University of Washington Bothell & Cascadia College Campus Library occupies Land that has been inhabited by Indigenous Peoples since time immemorial. Specifically, this campus is located on Sammamish Land from which settler colonists forcibly removed Coast Salish Peoples to reservations in the mid-19th century. Today, descendants of the Sammamish are members of several Coast Salish communities.
