Swinburne has a wide range of student systems, applications and software you can use to help with your studies including the Adobe Creative Cloud and Microsoft Office 365.
Student systems are the web tools you use for many of your interactions with Swinburne. From timetables, results, assignment submission portals and lecture recordings, these are the student systems you'll use most often.
Canvas is our learning management system, an online tool for accessing study materials, submitting assignments and staying informed about your units. Use your SIMS username and password to sign in and access course materials.
Free Adobe Creative Cloud
All Swinburne students have free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud and over 20 different apps including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects and so much more!
It’s important to check your student email regularly because we use it for important notifications. If you don’t check in often, you may miss a key date. At Swinburne, we use Microsoft Office 365 to manage student emails.

You can use Student One to manage and access your:
- study plan
- fee payments
- personal details
- exam timetables

You'll need your student ID and a password to sign in to Student One.
