Net-ID and Account Management

UW-Whitewater students and employees are assigned a unique Net-ID. Your Net-ID is the username you’ll use to access university technology resources.

  • Students receive their Net-ID when they apply to the university.
  • Instructors and Staff receive their Net-ID when they are entered into the HR system. Once a Net-ID is created employees can start using campus services (e.g. email).

The first time you use your Net-ID, you will be prompted to answer security questions and will have to reset your password. Passwords expire every 360 days and you will receive email reminders to reset your password. To activate or reset your password, visit http://password.uww.edu

Net-ID Features

  • Single username and password provides access to all university technology resources.
  • Pre-define your security questions to enable self-serve password resets.

Getting Started with your Net-ID

  • Students will have access when the application comes in. As long as the student is enrolled in one course, the service will not be removed.
  • If the application is denied, the student withdraws before enrolling or never enrolls, the services will be deprovisioned.
  • Email is provisioned when a student is admitted. As long as the student has terms active, email will remain active.
  • Email will be deprovisioned in February and September each year. This will allow all students to access their 1098T before the email is deprovisioned.
  • Notices will be sent prior to turning the service off.
  • Students have access to the services after their first term is activated. A student can tell the term is activated if they are able to enroll in courses for the term.
  • If a student has graduated, services will be removed after the last active term is complete and the degree is posted.
  • If the student is dismissed or discontinued, the services will be removed after the last active term. This will enable students with incompletes to maintain services while completing their courses.
  • Students have access to these services on the first day of their first term.
  • Suspended students are immediately removed from the Whitepages.
  • Student access will be removed after their last active term. If a student has a dismissed or discontinued status, the student will be removed if they are not actively enrolled in a course by the census date.

Students who have graduated or completed will receive lifetime access to the services with a green checkmark in the "Completed" column below. Graduates retain access to email for 6 months post-graduation.

  • Net-IDS are created after an employee is hired. No services are offered to applicants.

Most technology services are enabled for employees upon their date of hire. All campus employees receive subscriptions to LinkedIn Learning, Office 365, and Symantec Antivirus for their personal computers at no charge.

Role-Specific Services

The level of access to campus business systems is determined by the individual's role. Employees who change positions, but remain at UW-W will have their access levels adjusted upon entering their new role. Some services may require the use of multi-factor authorization (MFA). Learning Technology services include access to integrated tools such as Turnitin, Respondus, Clickers (student response system), and other instructional tools. If you require access to an additional network drive or folder, you can submit a self-service request, or contact the Help Desk.

UW-Whitewater employees who leave the University prior to retirement do not retain access to technology services.  Copy all personal and authorized files you wish to retain prior to leaving the University. Access to network storage is discontinued after employment ends. Cisco AMP Antivirus and Office 365 subscriptions used on personal devices will expire within 30 days of ending employment.

Emeritus or Retired Employees

Emeriti faculty and retired employees retain the technology services with a green checkmark in the columns below for their lifetime.

  • Retaining access to email is contingent upon resetting your Net-ID password every 360 days. Inactive email accounts (those with expired passwords not updated in over a year) will be closed and emails in those accounts will not be retained. 
  • Access to network storage is discontinued after active employment ends.Copy all personal files and other data you wish to retain prior to leaving the University
  • Cisco AMP Antivirus and Office 365 subscriptions used on personal devices will expire within 30 days of ending employment.
