How to connect to WiFi

Connecting to WIFI on campus is super straightforward. On your personal device, use your Curtin ID and password to log in to the “student-curtin” WiFi network.

If you’re experiencing any issues and need help connecting, visit the IT helpdesk located in Library Central, or find an alternative IT helpdesk on campus.

How to print on campus

Printing your unit outlines is a great way to get familiar with how to print on campus. There are printer-copiers available at all three Library locations.

Check out the printing on campus guide to learn how to print wirelessly anywhere on campus. If you need help or encounter any issues, a library staff member can guide you through the process.

How to borrow items from the Library

You’ll notice at our three Library locations at Curtin Perth that the only bookshelves you can physically browse are the high demand items in Library Central. You can borrow a maximum of two high demand items for up to four items at a time.

We still have the rest of our physical collection available, you just need to use the Library Catalogue to browse. Learn how to request items to borrow here.

You can borrow an unlimited amount of items and most loans are of an unlimited length of time. When you receive an email notification, you will need to return the item by the specified date.
