Student Computer Accounts

VIU students are entitled to a student computer account provided they abide by the Use of Information Technology Policy.

What is included with a student computer account?

  • A user and password that you can use to log on to VIU student computers. You can also use your username and password to connect to VIU-Secure wireless, VIULearn (VIU's Learning Management System), and use printing services.
  • 10 GB of private network storage (called your U: Drive) for your files that you can access on any campus computer and from home.
  • A web folder for creating HTML files (i.e. web pages) and other web-based media content, available on the Internet.

How long do student accounts remain active?

Your account will remain active for 120 days after you are no longer enrolled as a Vancouver Island University student. At the end of the 120 days your account is disabled. Data is removed from an account 1 year after it has been disabled. If you register in a regular program during that 1 year period, your account will be re-enabled with no loss of data.
