Missing a tile?

If a tile isn't automatically on your homepage, you may be able to find it by searching. For assistance with adding tiles, see MyUW - Searching and Customizing MyUW Homepage.

If you are unable to find a tile by searching, your account is likely missing a specific role or piece of identifying information that is necessary to access some tiles.
