My UW System Portal - Bookmarking the Portal

You must use some care when bookmarking My UW System. This document describes how to reliably create a bookmark.

Here are the two ways we recommend bookmarking My UW System:

  1. Manually create a bookmark to ensure that the url is https://my.wisconsin.edu. The exact instructions for this depend on what browser you use.
  2. Use your browser's automatic bookmarking feature AFTER you have logged in. The URL will be similar to https://my.wisconsin.edu/portal/render.userLayoutRootNode.uP

Do NOT bookmark the initial screen showing a list of schools participating in the federation.
Do NOT bookmark the login screen where you enter your username/password.
Those bookmarks will not reliably work. Use the two methods described above.
