Common IT Support Problems

Connect to RMIT University WIFI

Wherever you are on campus, no matter how you work, you can connect to RMIT’s wireless network. 

Connecting is as simple as:

1. Choosing RMIT-University.

  • RMIT - University is available to RMIT students, RMIT staff and authorised visitors. This secure or ‘closed access’ network will appear in the wifi settings of your device. It enables authorised users to access the internet and RMIT’s network.
  • RMIT - Guest is the temporary network available to first-time users of the RMIT community. This ‘open access’ network will appear in the wifi settings of any device you may choose to work on.

2. Entering your RMIT ID and password.

  • For more information about how to get connected see the instruction below. It contains step-by-step instructions explaining how to gain access to the RMIT wireless networks, no matter which mobile device or laptop you bring on campus.

RMIT systems log in

Your RMIT login details are used to access all RMIT systems, including your RMIT email, campus WiFi, myTimetable, Enrolment Online and Canvas. 

The exception is for Enrolment Portal (used to apply to graduate): you need to use your RMIT email address instead of your RMIT ID (e.g. s123456). 

Are you new to RMIT?

See below for instructions on how to log in for the first time. If you've logged in before, you can change or reset your password using the buttons above.

Log in for the first time:

  1. Determine your RMIT ID and temporary password
    Your RMIT ID (username) is the letter ‘s’ followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters). You’ll find your student number in your RMIT enrolment email.
    Example: If your student number is 3123456D, then your RMIT ID would be s3123456.
    Note: English language students based in Vietnam will have their RMIT ID starting with an ‘L’.
    Your temporary password is the letter 'p' followed by your date of birth backwards, with an exclamation mark '!' at the end.
    Example: If your date of birth is 8 April 1998, then your password is p19980408! 
  2. Change your password
    Log in using your temporary login details (see above) and change your password to something hard to guess but easy to remember. Find out how to create a strong password
    Log in and change your password
  3. Set up your self service details

    Make sure your mobile and personal email contact details are current by contacting Student Connect to update your personal information.
