To make things easier for you, we've provided a range of online systems so you can easily access your information and interact with us from anywhere. Each system has a different purpose and they all have their own quirks in the way they work.
How you access our systems
Every student has a WesternAccount, which is your personal login. You use this login to access all the online systems, so you only have one login to remember. You create your WesternAccount as part of the process the first time you enrolled – it's just your student ID number the password you chose. And remember, to keep your information safe, you will need to change your password regularly.
Are you a brand new Western Sydney University student? Make sure you set up your WesternAccount as part of your enrolment.
Western Central (Student Portal)
The University is introducing a new and improved student portal called Western Central - now available for use on any computer, tablet, iPhone or Android device. It is also available (free) through the Apple App Store for iPad only. Search for 'Western Central' in the App Store on your iPad to get started. Western Central support resources are available in the MyIT Portal .
All students have a free Western Sydney University email account, which is the official way we communicate with you. We will send you vital information about your enrolment, exams, results and graduation, as well as University news and event information.
You should check your email regularly to make sure you get the information you need, when you need it. In fact, when you first enrolled, you committed to checking your student email daily during teaching sessions and weekly out of teaching sessions, as part of the student declaration you agreed to. If you don't check your student email regularly, you will miss important messages which may affect your enrolment.
When contacting the University by email you must use your Western Sydney University student email account.
MyStudent Records (MySR)
MySR is where all your records are stored. It's also where you enrol, change your enrolment (until the census date), keep your contact details up to date, check your fees and see your results.
Allocate+ (Tutorial Registration)
Allocate+ (Tutorial Registration) is where you register for your tutorials and other classes, and create your personal timetable.
PlatformWeb is where you access your personal exam timetable.
vUWS (pronounced views) is our online learning environment. Your course and some of your units may have a vUWS site, which may include your unit or course outline, information about your assessment tasks, study resources and announcements related to your unit or course. Make sure you check your vUWS sites regularly during session as they may be updated at any time.
You can access vUWS via Western Central.
Western Sydney University Handbook (course and unit search)
You don't need your WesternAccount to access the Western Sydney University Handbook.
WesternWifi is our on campus wireless internet service. It's free for all students. Just use your WesternAccount to login from any laptop, tablet or smartphone on any Western Sydney University campus.
