As a student at Western Sydney University, you will use a number of online systems to access your information and interact with us from anywhere.
How to 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 (opens in a new window) the first time you enrol – it's just your student ID number and the password you chose.
The MyWestern student portal (opens in a new window) is a point of entry to the applications, systems and notifications you'll need at Western Sydney U.
It's where you can go to check your email, access Office 365 applications like Word and student systems like vUWS, and stay up-to-date with important news and events.
The Western Central student portal is being replaced by MyWestern in April 2017. If you are using features in Western Central such as digital workbooks, see About MyWestern for alternatives. .
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)
My Student Records (MySR) (opens in a new window) 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.
For more information, see My Student Records Help.
Allocate+ (Tutorial Registration and timetables)
Allocate+ (opens in a new window) is where you register for your tutorials and other classes, and create your personal timetable. It is also where you access your personalised exam timetable.
vUWS (opens in a new window) (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 choose to set up an account with Onestop, which allows you to keep a record of your payments.
Western Sydney University Handbook (course and unit search)
You don't need your WesternAccount to access the Western Sydney University Handbook.(opens in a new window)
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.
