Some technical issues include:
Login error: You are not known by the system
This message means that your course enrolment hasn’t yet loaded into myTimetable, most likely because you've only just enrolled. Please check your enrolment and try again in 60 minutes.
Long login or loading time
It may take longer than usual to log in or load pages when the system is under high demand. Please be patient. We recommend you wait at least 30 seconds before refreshing, or you'll be moved to the back of the server queue for the system.

All rooms at RMIT are numbered in the following way: (Building number).(Floor number).(Room number). for example, room 20, on the second floor of building 86 is 86.02.20.
You'll find buildings on our maps page. Floors are numbered using the American system which means that the ground floor is level 1.
RMIT uses preferential class allocation for higher education courses only.
How does the preferential allocation work?
Follow these three easy steps:
Step 1: Plan your class timetable
Step 2: Enter your class preferences
Step 3: Review the classes you’ve been allocated to and adjust your personal class timetable if required.
Get the full details including key dates for each step.
Am I allowed to change my class preference?
Yes, during the preference entry period you can change your class preferences.
How many preferences should I enter?
You need to enter at least 4 preferences. Follow the prompts in myTimetable.
Can I increase my chances of getting allocated to my preferences?
The preferences you enter are always taken into account, but there's no guarantee that you'll get your first preference. If you select only very popular classes, you might be unlucky and not be allocated to them. You can tell what classes are popular in myTimetable from the percentage figure beside the 'Preference' dropdown box for each class. You can use this to help you decide whether to list it in your preferences.
Here are some examples: Class on Friday at 1:00 pm is 53% subscribed. This means that the number of people who have listed this class as their first preference is substantially lower than the number of available places in this class. The chances of getting into this class are pretty high. Class on Thursday at 1:00 pm is 173% subscribed. This means that the number of people who have listed this class as their first preference is substantially higher than the number of available places in this class. This
What can I do if I don't get the classes I want?
You can adjust your personal class timetable when myTimetable opens for allocation adjustment (See Step 3 above). This is when any remaining spaces in classes become available on a ‘first-in, first-served’ basis.
If a class is full, there are some things you can do, but there's no guarantee that you'll be placed into that class.
Keep checking the timetabling system
As people swap out of the class, places may become available. There's no waiting list - you can select classes on a ‘first-in, first-served’ basis from the point that the space becomes available.
Swap with another student
Speak to other students in the course who might be able to swap with you. Please don't attend classes that are already full, as numbers in each class are limited due to health, safety and quality of teaching.
Vocational education students
If you're a vocational education student and you don't have a group code assigned, you'll be unable to view your timetable. Timetables that don't appear may also be due to combined group codes. Check your enrolment to get your group code. To avoid issues with full classes or clashes within your timetable, confirm that you're properly enrolled in the correct group codes for all courses. Vocational education programs may take up to 3 days for the timetabling system to update when you change your enrolment.
First, check that you are correctly enrolled in that course. After you complete or change your enrolment via Enrolment Online, you need to wait 60 minutes before that course will display in myTimetable.
If you completed or changed your enrolment on-campus via the paper-based process, you need to wait approximately three business days before that course will display in myTimetable, to allow time for processing.
Check your Confirmation of Enrolment statement via Enrolment Online to confirm that you are enrolled.
If you're in a vocational education or associate degree program, and two or more courses in your program are taught together in a 'cluster', you'll see a reduced number of courses and activities in your Enrolment window. This is normal for clustered courses.
