Alibaba Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) Service

Alibaba Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) Service for students in China

This network service provides a lower latency connection to U of T services for students connecting from mainland China. Note: If you are not attempting to connect to U of T resources from within China please do not use this service.

This service is intended to provide access to specific online U of T resources. Some websites outside of U of T will not be available when using this service, such as YouTube and Yahoo.

Please note: When opening MyAccess ( to retrieve some Library resources (e.g. oxfordbooks), you may have to disconnect from the CEN to do so

More FAQ on this service can be found on the ITS Preparedness website.
