Unifi is the UWA wireless network for all University staff and students.
Where can I use Unifi?
To find out if a particular building or area of campus is wireless-enabled, check the Wireless Coverage Map.
Note: buildings listed here as wireless-enabled may have particular areas where reception is weak or unavailable due to building layout, type of construction, or other factors. This resource is provided as a general guide and does not guarantee that a wireless signal will be available in all areas.
How do I use Unifi?
Staff and students authenticate to the Unifi wireless network using their Pheme credentials.
- have instant access to the wireless network. There is no requirement to apply, register or create an additional account. Access is provided as soon as their Pheme account is registered.
- have immediate access to the wireless network once their Pheme account is activated and they have agreed to the terms and conditions of internet access - done by choosing the 'change internet access' link in Pheme.
Most modern laptops, notebooks, PDAs and smartphones are compatible with Unifi.
