UniKey access and Sydney mail

A range of online services is provided to enrolled students. All students are issued with a UniKey login name and password at the time of initial enrolment. Your UniKey details also provide you with access to your Sydney Mail (University email) account. Important notices such as availability of Learning Management System sites, notification of last-minute changes to class times/locations, reminders on enrolment procedures/deadlines as well as official correspondence from the University's central administration (including the library) will be sent to this account. It is essential that you either check it on a regular basis or arrange for mail to be redirected to an address of your choice (go to http://sydney.edu.au/ict/student). If you choose to redirect your Sydney Mail, please ensure you maintain a current alternate address. For assistance, please contact the ICT Help Desk.


Collection of reading materials after enrolment

A CD of reading materials is prepared for most units of study. CDs are normally available approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to commencement of a unit and may be collected from the Information Desk at the New Law School upon presentation of your Student Campus Card. CDs are free of charge to enrolled students. Students will be notified regarding the availability of readings via LMS announcements which will also be sent to your University email address. It is therefore important to ensure that you complete all enrolment requirements well in advance of class. A list of available reading materials can be found here.

LMS sites are generally accessible on the first day of classes for semester-length units. Students enrolled in intensive units will be notified of the availability of the LMS site via their University email address.

Students are strongly advised to check LMS sites regularly as important notices and assessment details may be posted to the unit LMS site. To log into the LMS, go to https://elearning.sydney.edu.au or you can also access the site via the Sydney Law School website and select ‘eLearning/LMS’ from the ‘Quick Links’ drop-down menu).
