Go to http://wiki.ucl.ac.uk and login with your normal UCL user ID and password.
The page which appears is the UCL Wiki Dashboard. It lists the spaces (i.e. different areas in the wiki) to which you have access in a column on the left. You may be able to see some spaces without logging in, but you won't be able to do much.

It is also possible to edit wiki pages in Word.

You may find it quicker to create content by using wiki markup. Using wiki markup is a powerful way to add design and functionality to your wiki pages. To do this, select the Wiki Markup tab after selecting the Edit tab. There is a summary of the markup system available from the full guide link in the right column. (This only appears when you're editing.) Common codes include:
