Parking and transportation
To photocopy simply swipe your UoW student Id card through the photocopier and enter your pin number. When your student ID card is issued, an email is sent to your student email address with a PIN number.
Each student has a UniCash account. To print your work you need to have money in your UniCash account.
The way students add money to their UniCash accounts has changed. It is now an online process using a web browser.
To do this you must have a valid credit card or a bank account capable of Internet banking (we suggest one of the major banks).
Top up your Unicash account online.
