Is it possible to download zip files from a website with login account and password?

I tried

wget --recursive --no-parent -nd https://*edu/pages/access/search.jsp

However, not being able to download all the zip files. got a copyright message below.

What should be done next? The files are really huge to download to my local computer.

You should try to render like a human browser:

wget --user-agent='Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0' --recursive --no-parent -nd https://*edu/pages/access/search.jsp
