But the good news is that there are no other fees. To find out more about the UDUS service, have a look at the DIS-Connect web page at:
Students enrolled in CSE courses will be given two hours of UDUS access per week per course (paid for by the School) for each week up to and including StuVac. The payment to UDUS is made in two blocks: in the first weeks of session, the amount available is the total for the period up to the HECS census date, after which the rest of the session's UDUS allocations are made. The allocated funds may be used until the end of the exam period.
Now before you complain that the quota is not enough, approximately two hours per course per week is considered adequate for course related activities. There is nothing to stop you from buying extra time from DIS if surfing the WWW is your passion. Our advice is to use the alloted time sparingly because you can never be sure when you'll need it for a major assignment sometime during the session.
All students are provided with a UDUS computer account, which is separate from any account you may have on the School's computers. To find out your UDUS account password (UniPass) you need to visit the DIS-Connect desk on Level 2 (Room 231) of the UNSW Main Library Building, opposite the Loans Desk. To use your School account from home you must first connect to your UDUS account and then ssh to one of the School's computers (see section 1.10.2 below for information on using ssh).
Staff and Research Postgraduate Students are now advised to use UDUS because the school does not provide modem pools any more.
