MyUW System Portal - Default Tiles on Homepage

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.

In MyUW, the portal displays a variety of default tiles on your homepage.

What is a default tile?

MyUW sets default content on your home page that may be useful to you based on your campus affiliation and employee roles.

You can re-arrange, remove, and add more tiles to your homepage. For assistance navigating the MyUW homepage, see MyUW System Portal - Navigating and Searching in MyUW (KB 66455).

Missing a tile?

If a tile isn't automatically on your homepage, you may be able to find it by searching. For assistance with adding tiles, see MyUW System Portal - Navigating and Searching in MyUW (KB 66455).

If you are unable to find a tile by searching, your account is likely missing a specific role or piece of identifying information that is necessary to access some tiles. 

For assistance with accessing missing tiles that require an HR Person ID such as Mandatory Training or Time and Absence, please contact UW Shared Services at or (608) 262-0600.

For assistance with accessing other missing tiles, please contact or your local campus IT Help Desk.

  • UW-Green Bay users should direct any questions, concerns, or change requests related to the 12 default tiles above to the UW-Green Bay IT Service Desk.
