What is UniConnect VPN?

The UniConnect VPN service links your computer into the UWA campus network, which is then assigned a UWA internet address as if you were on-campus.

You can access resources which are available only to users while connected on-campus. These resources include various library services, coursework and course information and any online journals which you can normally access only from a UWA managed computer.

All of your online activity whilst connected passes through the University network, including internet activity. As such, you should use UniConnect only whilst you require access to your University resources and disconnect when not required. Traffic passing from the University to you through UniConnect will be included in the total traffic charged to you by your internet provider.


UniConnect uses a combination of your UWA account and multi-factor authentication. Please ensure your account is in order before attempting connection. 

You can use the UniConnect service from anywhere that provides full internet connectivity.
