All users of the Institute’s PC network need to have a username (often called a User ID) and password. When you enrol and are issued with a student card you will also be issued with a letter which tells you what your User ID is, what your initial password is, and what you need to do with them so that you can log on to the network. The password on the letter needs to be changed the first time you log on. If you don’t change it, you will be unable to logon next time.

What do I do if I forget my logon or password?

You can go to the Customer Service Centre at any campus and ask for your logon/password to be reset. You will need to have your Student Card with you to identify yourself, or another form of photo ID.

Will I be issued with a student email account?

Upon enrolment students are issued an email account for communicating with staff and other students. The details of your email address will be issued with your username and password.

It will consist of your studentid@student.swtafe.edu.au Please refer to the Computer Use Guidelines available in the ICTS section of the South West TAFE website.

Where can I access the internet?

Internet access is available via the South West TAFE wireless network and on all networked computers in the classrooms and SLC. Inappropriate use such as viewing pornography, excessive downloads or inappropriate emails will result in restrictions on the students use. Please refer to the Computer Use Guidelines available in the ICTS section of the South West TAFE website.

Where can I find computers I can use outside of class time?

Computers are available for student use in the Library. Laptops are also available for Overnight or weekend loan.

Can I bring my own laptop to South West TAFE?

Students are able to bring their own laptops to any of our campuses and access our wireless network free of charge. For assistance in accessing the network, please speak with our ICT or Library staff.

Whilst we welcome student’s bringing personal laptops, as with any personal items, they do so at their own risk and are responsible for the security of these items.
