UWA provides IT accounts for all staff and students so they can access a range of systems.
Staff are given a Pheme account and may apply for a central administration network account, which enables them to apply for access to central corporate systems such as TRIM and some HR systems.
They are also able to access the network when away from the campus using their Pheme account.
Students are given a central UWA student account to access student systems. This can be upgraded to give them access to Unifi wireless and the Internet. Students can then apply for a student wired network account to access the UWA VPN.
Contractors, casual or non-UWA employees are also able to apply for a Pheme account and to access the central network, although there is a special process.
