Note: For Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, we now recommend the UniDrive Client as the preferred method of connecting to UniDrive from your own computer.
To access your UniDrive network storage using your own personal device, follow the appropriate setup guide for your device.
For a laptop or desktop computer, the following instructions are available to assist you in this configuration:
These guides will allow you to map your network storage drive via the WebDAV protocol, so you can manage and edit your files on your own device.
For Android and Apple iOS devices, you will need to download a WebDAV client of your choice for your mobile device.
The guides below outline the settings and information you will need to provide to setup the client app to access UniDrive.
For your information: WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a file access protocol that facilitates secure collaboration between users in editing and managing documents and files stored on servers accessible via the Internet.
A UniDrive web portal is available to allow access to your UWA data store via any web browser. Simply visit https://unidrive.uwa.edu.au and login with your student number and Pheme password. You will have access to your home and shared drives.
This is method useful on devices where you do not have the rights to, or do not wish to configure your details onto a device, e.g. at an internet café, using a friends laptop etc.
NOTE: Using this access method, you need to download your files from UniDrive through the web portal to your local device in order to open or edit them. Make sure you remember to upload the file back to UniDrive using the portal when you are finished!
