Alumni can access the free Wi-Fi available on the University of Canberra Bruce Campus. Simply register as a guest using any email address and create a username and password.
Unfortunately, the University of Canberra is no longer in a position to provide Office 365 email accounts to Alumni. From 31st May 2022 existing accounts and their contents will be removed.
This decision has not been made lightly, but due to support complexities, and cyber security implications, this service is no longer able to be maintained.
All Alumni and past students have been notified and given time to take the appropriate steps.
