Student email and collaboration tools

All students have access to a comprehensive suite of communications and collaboration tools including University email and unlimited file storage.

All students with an active Pheme account are automatically assigned an email address. It is important that you check this email address regularly as it will be used by the University for official correspondence with you, including:

  • information about your fees and enrolment
  • exam information
  • notices from the Library including overdue books and fines
  • communications from lecturers and tutors
  • many other miscellaneous purposes

Student collaboration tools

Student collaboration tools allow students to organise events, and share and create collaborative documents, including text documents, webpages, spreadsheets, slides and more. You have unlimited storage shared across the tools. Currently, Student Email Drive and Student Sites cannot be accessed offline.

Student Calendaring

Student Calendaring is a way to manage your schedule and tasks, import your class times and organise meetings with friends and classmates.

With Student Calendaring you can create one-off and recurring events, set yourself reminders, share your calendar with others and subscribe to calendars to keep track of classes and UWA events.


  • Create one-off and recurring events.
  • Invite friends and classmates.
  • Set reminders.
  • Attach files.
  • Create multiple calendars.
  • Share calendars with others.
  • Add general interest and contacts' calendars.
  • Schedule and check off tasks.

When you first sign in to your calendar a setup wizard will run to help you choose your language, time zone and reminder settings, and to teach you how to create your first event.

Further information on how to use Student Calendaring features is available online.

Student Email Drive

Student Email Drive is a place to store, edit, share and create documents, files and folders.

With Student Email Drive you can upload most types of files, create text documents, spreadsheets and slide presentations, and you can then share and collaboratively edit these files with anyone.

Use Student Email Drive to work on a group assignment or share your data or notes for exams and projects. Student Email Drive is separate from your network storage drive on the UWA network; it has more capacity and can be used collaboratively.
