Internet & wifi access

Get connected - Which network?
The University of Notre Dame Australia uses an encrypted wireless Network, to ensure that all Information passing through the wireless is protected.
To access the wireless network you must have an active staff or student username and password. Access to the wireless is granted under the same policies as accessing the wired network.
There are three wireless networks available on all campuses. Not all networks are accessible for students.
The main wireless network accessible to both staff and students, available on all campuses. Users can connect their personal devices to this network using their university credentials.
This network is only accessible on university owned devices. These devices include laptops, portable computers and tablets. Students and staff are unable to connect to this network on personal devices.
Eduroam allows staff and students from member universities to access our wireless network. Notre Dame staff and students can access the teaching and learning spaces (e.g. libraries and WiFi) at other Universities using this network. Almost all Australian universities are members of Eduroam.

Two different services manage Staff and Student email.
- Staff email is managed through Microsoft Exchange and the Information Technology Office. All emails sent and received are monitored through Mimecast SPAM filtering services.
- Microsoft manages student email through the Office 365 service. All emails sent and received are monitored through Microsoft.
Each system is managed differently and therefore cannot be merged or accessed using the same credentials.
Staff email can only be accessed using your staff ID and password through the Outlook Web App (OWA) or the Outlook client app on staff campus computers.
Student email is accessible from the Office 365 portal under the student page on the Notre Dame website.
It is recommended to keep staff and student emails separate.
Student files and folders are stored on a central storage system known as shared drives. These shared drives are available on all computers on campus and remote access using the File Server.
Shared drives available to students are:
- H:\ Drive Home drive linked to an individual student account. (Cannot be seen by other students)
- S:\ Drive Student drive to share files and folders with students.
File Server – Off-Campus Access
The File Server allows students to access their data off campus on their personal device. All shared drives are accessible with the same folder structure found on the shared drives on campus computers. The File Server is accessible at https://my.nd.edu.au/sfs and also via the MyNDPortal on the Notre Dame website.
