Request Form – Staff

Last updated: July 3, 2023

Many pre-built reports and analytics that use Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) data are available to you. You’ll find a full catalog of offerings at UW’s Business Intelligence Portal. If you need to write ad hoc queries against EDW data, we recommend that you are an experienced query-writer and understand the impact your queries may have on other users and applications using EDW data. See the Connect to and Query Data page for information on recommended query tools and instructions on connecting to EDW data.

To request access to these reports, analytics, and data, please review the instructions below.
