myAllocator tutorial sign-up

myAllocator is a tutorial and lab sign-up system. It helps you plan your timetable and makes sure you don’t have any clashes with other courses.

Most tutorials will not be loaded until the start of the first trimester and tutorials that are loaded may not be available for sign up immediately. If you are concerned about your tutorial being unavailable, contact your course coordinator.

Use your Victoria University username and password to log in.
