New student website, new service names

New student website, new service names

Have you noticed the student website looks a little different? That’s because it's had a new update! And some key student services are now known by new names.

The student website ( has recently undergone a revamp and redesign. The new student site, which went live on 10 December 2021, aims to make it easy for RMIT students to find the services and information they need online.

New site features – including an improved menu navigation that appears horizontally at the top of all student website pages, and homepage design – were developed with feedback from current students to ensure the new website best meets the needs of students.

Bachelor of Public Relations student Jonica provided feedback during the design process.

“I like that all the systems I use regularly – like Canvas and Enrolment Online – are easy to access from the student homepage.” says Jonica. “And there’s a ‘Study tools and support’ section with quick links to referencing guides and free software.”

“I also like the support and services page – it makes it simple to see and browse all available student services in one place.”

New service names – RMIT Connect becomes Student Connect, IT Service and Support Centre becomes IT Connect

Some key student services have recently been renamed.

RMIT Connect, RMIT’s general student support service, is now called Student Connect. Student Connect will continue to offer general, academic and administrative support to all RMIT students via online enquiries, webchat and phone. Go to Student Connect for more information and contact methods.

The IT Service and Support Centre, RMIT’s IT systems support service for students and staff, is now simply called IT Connect. Go to IT Connect for more information and contact methods.

These service name changes are part of a project to standardise and simplify RMIT service contact points.

Website feedback

While we have done our best to triple-check every link and line of text across the 600+ pages of the new student website, mistakes can happen. If you spot an broken link, typo or other issue on any RMIT website pages, please report them via the Website Feedback Form and we will fix them as quick as we can.
