Unifi (wireless)

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.

Staff
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.
Students
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.
