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 'MyUWSAccount', which is just our name for your personal login. You used this login to access all the online systems, so you only have one login to remember. You create your MyUWSAccount 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 UWS student? Make sure you set up your MyUWSAccount as part of your enrolment.
MyUWS Student Portal
The MyUWS Student Portal (or MyUWS for short) is the easiest way to access all the online systems and keep up to date with what you need to know. It's a hub which shows key messages, reminds you when you need to change your password and has a link to all the other systems as well as key information and websites.
UWS is introducing a new and improved student portal called MyC3. The app is free and is available through the Apple App Store. Search for 'MyC3' in the App Store on your iPad to get started. MyC3 support resources are available in the MyIT Portal (opens in new window).

All students have a free UWS 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 UWS student email account.
You can access your student email via MyUWS or MyC3.
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.
You can access Allocate+ (Tutorial Registration) via MyUWS or MyC3.
PlatformWeb is where you access your personal exam timetable.
You can access PlatformWeb via MyUWS or MyC3.
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 MyUWS or MyC3.
UWS Handbook (course and unit search)
You don't need your MyUWSAccount to access the UWS Handbook.
AirUWS is our on campus wireless internet service. It's free for all students. Just use your MyUWSAccount to login from any laptop, tablet or smartphone on any UWS campus.
