Staff members can connect their laptops to the UWA network and the internet.

Connecting

Connection to the UWA network (and the internet) for laptops owned and managed by the University is arranged by the relevant local IT support staff.

Ask your local IT Support if you want to connect your laptop to the network or access your section's shared drives. They will advise if it can be done.

Access

Wired and wireless access to the broader UWA network is provided for mobile devices through the central VPN and wired and wireless system. This provides a basic connection to the UWA network, giving access to the internet, to UWA intranet sites and restricted Library journals.

There are many wireless connection points on campus.

Configuring

Access the instructions on how to configure and connect your laptop or other mobile device to be able to connect to the VPN wired and wireless system.
