- About Deakin
Access to systems and networks owned or operated by Deakin University impose certain responsibilities and obligations. There are several policies applicable to the use of Deakin's internet services contained within The Guide.
Access to websites outside the Deakin domain (deakin.edu.au) is monitored and in some cases, blocked.
Deakin has a quota system that provides each student with an amount of internet usage sufficient for their study purposes. As a guide quotas are:
If your quota is exceeded your internet access will be slowed until the beginning of the following trimester, unless you have negotiated with the IT Service Desk for a quota addition for legitimate study purposes.
While all internet usage is monitored, not all website traffic will affect your quota. Some commonly used websites including Google, Microsoft, Atomic Learning and other Australian University websites are excluded from the quota. In addition, internet usage between the hours of 5 pm and 9 am on weekdays, as well as all weekend is classed as off peak and will not be counted towards your quota.
The eSolutions Publications website has help sheets and user guides covering a wide range of internet related topics. These include instructions for setting up a wireless connection, configuring your internet browser, setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and many more.
