Access and Use of the Internet
The allocation of quotas to students is a mechanism by which the University manages access and use of the Internet. The amount of information downloaded from external websites is quantified in megabytes and a cost per megabyte is applied. The University funds quota amounts for some categories of students to enable University related Internet activity. The use of the University Internet sites does not count against these quotas.
You should read the information on these pages carefully so that you understand how Internet usage is monitored and reported as well as how to purchase more quota should you need it.
Undergraduate students have been provided with an internet download quota of 1000Mb per internet period for University related use of the Internet.
As mentioned above, the analysis of actual Internet download statistics indicate that the overwhelming majority of students will not be affected by the quotas which have been provided. However, Internet traffic will continue to be monitored and the University provided quotas will be increased where necessary, at the request of course supervisors.
Honours, Postgraduate Coursework and all International Students
Honours, Postgraduate Coursework and all international students will receive a University Funded Quota of 2000Mb per period.
Staff and Postgraduate Research Students
Internet usage by staff and other categories of students will be reported to their associated School or Department which will be responsible for traffic costs.
All Staff and Students
All use of the Internet must be in accordance with University policy. Some types of internet use (eg, transmission of material of an obscene nature) are specifically prohibited by the Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy and/or State and Commonwealth law.
