If what you need isn't on your homepage, search for it!

Note: The search results page will vary by campus. Some campuses searches will return directory or campus homepage search results in addition to content in MyUW; for other campuses searches will only return results within MyUW.

The Notification Bell next to your name will deliver important and timely information to you.

Customizing your homepage

Toggle between expanded mode and compact mode using the switch to the upper right.

  • Expanded mode uses a large widget for each app in MyUW, many of which display additional information directly on the homepage.

  • Compact mode uses smaller icons, so more widgets can fit on your screen. However, in this mode no additional information will be displayed and each app will need to be accessed individually.

Drag and drop widgets to change their order.
