- I can't login to my student account. What should I do?
How can I reset my password?
You can reset your password at accounts.unimelb.edu.au. We recommend resetting your student password every 6 months.
Why do I have two email addresses?
Each student at the University has a primary email address and an alias email address. Both email addresses redirect received emails to the same inbox – so don’t worry about missing out on any emails!
It is easy to remember that your primary email address is in the format email@example.com. This is the email you should use when connecting to the eduroam Wi-Fi network and when downloading software using your student account.
I'm participating in a subject that is described as Dual Delivery and has Blended Synchronous Learning. What does this mean?
Dual Delivery and Blended Synchronous Learning are terms that describe how subjects that include online elements are being delivered and how you as a student can participate in them. Please see our Studying Remotely guide (points 6 and 7) for a full explanation on what these terms mean.
Disclosure of Personal Information
The University's student email service has a spam filtering system. Generally it is not possible to take action against spammers unless the spam falls within the provisions of the Spam Act 2003. However, the University does act against University personnel who send spam. Particularly, the use of student mailing lists by students to advertise books for sale or books wanted is spamming and does lead to penalties.
