MyUW - Welcome to the new MyUW

Guide to using MyUW for first-time users.

Quick Start

  • Widgets on your homepage contain useful information and links.


  • If what you need isn't on your homepage, search for it! For example, let's say you wanted to access Google Apps; you can do a search.


  • The search will display results from within MyUW, the campus directory, and a site search. Click on a result to access it. For results within MyUW, you can also Add to home or view more Details.


Customizing your Homepage

  • Use the Options menu to switch between Expanded mode and Compact Mode.

  • Expanded mode uses a large icon for each app in MyUW, many of which are widgets that display additional information, allowing you to access more directly from your homepage.

  • Compact mode uses smaller icons, so more apps can fit on your screen. However, in this mode no additional information will be displayed and each app will need to be accessed individually

  • Drag and Drop tiles to change their order.

  • To remove a tile, hover the mouse cursor over it and select the X icon.

  • To browse a list of available apps in MyUW, click Add more to home.
