UniConnect is the UWA virtual private network (VPN) service for current students. This can link your personal computer to the UWA campus network providing access to the internet and online resources via remote VPN access when you are off campus (e.g. at home). Note: students located in mainland China may experience limitations in using UniConnect. If you are a student studying from China, you will need to use the FortiClient VPN software for remote access. Instructions for requesting access, installing, configuring and connecting are available here.

To connect to UniConnect:

  1. Authenticate with your Pheme account
  2. Verifying your identity via Multi-factor authentication (MFA) using the Microsoft Authenticator app on your mobile device. 
    Note: your MFA sign in method must be set to 'Microsoft Authenticator - Notification'
Whilst connected to UniConnect you should be aware all internet traffic will pass through the UniConnect connection and UWA's network.
