MyUW for Staff

The new MyUW for staff presents personal, timely, and relevant information within a streamlined user experience that reduces information overload.  This brief video gives a quick tour of the new features available for UW staff. Video notes appear below.

Home page

When you go to the new MyUW, you’ll see a brand new home page. This new design makes it easy to quickly find the resources you need…without a lot of scrolling.

A new menu appears in the upper left area of every page, providing links to your accounts, your profile, the academic calendar and UW Resources.  

If you’re viewing MyUW on a mobile device, open the menu by clicking the icon to the left of MyUW.

You can get to your email via the link in the top of the purple banner. Quick Links, on the right side of MyUW, are a customizable list of popular links and links to sites you’ve recently visited. For more details, including a video on how to customize quick links, visit this page on IT Connect: https://itconnect.uw.edu/learn/tools/myuw-help-center/bookmarks/

UW Resources

UW Resources is a collection of popular links for students, faculty and staff. You can access these resources from the menu on the left of the screen (step 1).

You can pin collections of links that you use frequently to your home page for quick access in the future. Resources that you have pinned appear near the bottom of your home page, just above the UW Resources card.

You can also access UW Resources from the card at the bottom of the home page. If you want to clear up your home page, just click Unpin.
