MyUW - Using the Bookmarks Module

The My Bookmarks app allows a MyUW user to store internet site links in MyUW. These links are available from any computer that can access MyUW.

Attention Universities of Wisconsin Employees: If you no longer have access to MyUW after recent changes to the portal, your Bookmarks module is currently unavailable. The MyUW team is exploring how to export data for former users. Thank you for your patience — updates will be provided soon.

Need Immediate Assistance? If you have lost access and need help finding a bookmarked campus resource, please submit a support request to the UW Shared Services Service Operations team. They may be able to assist you with locating and bookmarking important sites for future use.
