About MyUW

What is MyUW?

MyUW is the front portal of University of Washington for anybody with a UW NetID. It is a simple and easy-to-use tool for accessing the web resources you need to fulfill your goals at the university. Based on your affiliations with the university, it anticipates what you may need by providing you a personalized set of resources. You can further customize it by including or excluding the resources you see listed, rearranging the content boxes, adding your favorite links in your custom boxes on any MyUW page, and choosing the appearance theme.

MyUW is developed and maintained by UW Information Technology staff. You will find more information on the MyUW Architecture System Description page.
