We are constrained, by the terms of licenses for subscription of purchased ejournals, eBooks, and online databases to permit access off campus only to current staff and students of the university. 

We are not licensed to provide this access to alumni. This would apply to all staff, no longer employed by the University and all students who are no longer listed as active on the Student Register. Despite the current situation and the lack of access to physical locations and resources, we are not able to change the terms of such licenses.

Alumni can register with the Cantab.net Alumni service where a range of online resources will be available through a separate subscription arrangement. See https://www.alumni.cam.ac.uk/benefits/journals-and-online-resources for further details.
