Set up your UW-Whitewater Credentials

Follow these steps to establish your log-in credentials:

  1. Visit password.uww.edu and click on the log-in button on the left side of your screen.

  2. The next page will require a username and password. Your username is your Net-ID, and your password is your seven-digit ID number (both your Net-ID and seven-digit ID number can be found on your admission letter).

  3. You will then be prompted to change your password.

  4. Once your password is changed, you can access all university accounts using your Net-ID and new password.
