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

Browser Selection

The My UW System portal team selects the web browsers that are most secure and readily available to campus users. These browsers get the most amount of testing by developers. While the portal works with most modern browsers and support may be provided for older versions, the team recommends that you regularly upgrade your web browser to take advantage of the latest performance enhancements and problem fixes.

Please note: Before upgrading your browser, we recommend that you contact your local IT support staff for any application incompatibilities that may be important to you.
