Printing on campus
Printing facilities are accessible through the university supplied staff card. Manual print options are available for temporary use if your staff card is lost or forgotten. Each department has a printer in their building. Staff are able to print from any machine on campus if they are away from their department or their department printer is under repair.
Think before you print
Notre Dame has adopted a greener approach to printing. We ask all staff to think before they print to minimise paper use. Please keep this in mind when using printers on campus. A recycle bin is located near a printer in each department for proper disposable of unwanted paper and printouts.
Every department office has a printer with a Safecom Reader installed. The reader is a small blue box that sits close to the number pad and screen on the front of the printer.
The default PIN is the last 4 digits of their staff number. PIN resets are completed on the printer or by an IT Support Technician.
All printer supplies are located at your campus IT Service Desk. Supplies are available from 8am – 5pm, Monday to Friday. Cartridges, Drums and Staples are accessible to staff for replacement and drop off.
Specialty parts including Transfer Kits, Fuser Kits, Roller Kits and Document Feeders require assistance from a Support Technician for installation and removal. If you receive a notification on your printer for the replacement of these parts please email the IT Service Desk the following information:
- Printer Model
- Serial Number
All printer consumables are recycled using the specialty bins located in the IT Office. Please return all printer consumables to these bins for proper disposal. Boxes from printer parts should be flattened and placed in the closest recycle bin on campus. IT does not handle the recycling of boxes and plastic wrap.
The University has published a suite of detailed policies, procedures and guidelines governing the use of IT services on campus. They can be found here under Management and Information Management.
Passwords & security
Select the most suitable option below for steps in changing your password.
Please also allow 45 minutes for your password to replicate across all systems on the Notre Dame network.
Your new password must adhere to the following security requirements,
- Must be at least 7 characters in length.
- Must contain a capital letter, lowercase letters and a number Eg. (1,2,3,4,5 etc.).
- Cannot contain your first name, last name or student number.
- Can contain symbols if you wish to strengthen your password. E.g (!@#$%^&*_+)
All passwords expire after 365 days (students) or 40 days (staff) and cannot be changed more than once in 24 hours. You also cannot use the last 24 previously set passwords on your account.
It is recommended to not change the number or symbol to the next increment when your password expires. It is better to select a passphrase instead to keep your account secure.
Internet & wifi access
Wi-Fi is available on our campuses in Broome, Broadway, Darlinghurst and Fremantle. The University is currently in the process of upgrading Wi-Fi across all campuses.
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.
