Setting up your staff/student IT account

You cannot access Unilife, Blackboard, your e-mail or our other online services until you have set up your account.

To set up your staff/student IT account you need to use our Self-service Account Administration (SSAA) system.

To access the online payment area, go to the Self-service Account Administration (SSAA) website.
