Network Accounts/Budgets

In order to print, your network account balance must be in credit. Some course coordinators provide students with a computer budget as part of their course.

Money may be added to network accounts at the Library’s Service Point (cash or EFTPOS) or using the EFTPOS workstations. Cashiers in the Registry Building / Contact Centres can also add money to network accounts.

Credit cards (Visa or Mastercard) may be used to add money to network accounts online through the student homepage

Note that GST is deducted at the time you pay money into your network account.

You can check your account balance through the student homepage.

Saving Work

Files may be saved to your H: drive (which is backed up to a server each night), to cloud storage (such as OneDrive), or to your own portable storage device (e.g. USB drive, external hard drive).

We recommend that you back up your files to a safe location, such as your H: drive or OneDrive. USB drives are frequently lost. You should also save work regularly during each session, since at times there may be unexpected network disruption.

All unsaved files will be deleted when you log off from your session (this includes any files saved to the desktop).

If you wish to save documents received by email, click on "Save" rather than "Open" when you are prompted to download the attached file, otherwise you may lose your document.
