The Monash Network account is different from the Monash IT account that you have created before coming to orientation. This network account lets you access the computer lab PCs, WiFi and printing services at the University. You will gain access to your student home drive, and school drive to store your personal files with this Network Account. Click here to find out more information about your Monash Network account.
