UpToDate makes you renew your account every 90 days to retain mobile access. Since mobile access in the app does not require you to sign in with a RFUMS username/password, UpToDate needs you to verify you are still a current RFUMS student, faculty, or staff member and are therefore eligible to receive access through the University's subscription.

To renew your access, do the following:

  1. Go to the Library homepage (, and click on UpToDate under Popular Resources. 
  2. If prompted, login with your HelixNet username and password. 
  3. Once you are on the UpToDate homepage, look to the upper right corner of the screen. If you see Rosalind Franklin University User, click on Log out. 
  4. Click on Log In.
  5. Login with your UpToDate username/password you used to register. 

It may take a few minutes to for the web version of UpToDate to sync with the mobile version. PLEASE NOTE: you do not have to physically be on campus to do this. You can renew on a laptop, tablet, phone - anything with a web browser. 

If you have any problems after following the steps above, please let us know.
