MyUW System Portal - Login, Access, and Troubleshooting

Soon Universities of Wisconsin employees will notice a different look when accessing
This change will not apply to UW-Madison or Flex employees.

Instead of reaching the MyUW portal, you'll use the new HRS and Campus Dashboard. For more information about this transition, check out the HR, Payroll and Benefits News announcement.

This document explains who can access the MyUW System portal, how to log in, and how to troubleshoot errors when accessing the portal.

This document is about the MyUW System Portal which is available to employees from participating universities and colleges throughout the University of Wisconsin System. It should not be confused with MyUW Madison, which is a similar portal available only for UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff.

MyUW System can be accessed at using Wisconsin Federation login.

First, select your University of Wisconsin System organization.
