Here's the fine print:
Unlimited Annual subscription This is a change from the previous 3-workstation agreement (one in Wilson, two in CNES) This allows for use of the TLG from all campus IP ranges as well as remote access via VPN/proxy. It does not include access to alumni or groups other than current students, faculty or staff.

More about TLG
Thirty seven years after its establishment, the Thesaurus of the Greek Language is a reality. The TLGĀ® Digital Library contains virtually all Greek texts surviving from the period between Homer (8 c. B.C.) and the fall of Byzantium in A.D. 1453. The TLG corpus is available in more than 2,000 universities and research centers around the world and used by thousands of researchers, educators, and students from a wide range of disciplines such as classics, archaeology, history, art, history, philosophy, linguistics, and theology/religious studies.

TLG is a comprehensive, full text database in Greek of most surviving texts from Homer
to the fall of Byzantium (1453) and beyond. All texts are in Greek using ancient Greek fonts or standard transliteration for search queries. Knowledge of ancient Greek is needed to make use of this resource.
