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.

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 4012345, then your RMIT ID would be s4012345.
    • Your temporary password is the letter 'p' followed by your date of birth backwards, with an exclamation mark '!' at the end. The format should be pYYYYMMDD!
      Example: If your date of birth is 8 April 2002, then your password is p20020408!
  2. Change your password
    Log in and 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. Some details to note:
    • Have to have more than 8 characters
    • Have at least 1 number, 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 special character (e.g. !, @, #, $, etc.)
    • Must not contain personal information (e.g: First/middle/last name, Date of Birth, RMIT ID, Phone number, etc.)
