How do I get a UW username and password?

If you are currently a UW student, faculty member, or staff member, you already have a username and password for WyoWeb – it is your UW domain username and password. This is the same account you use to log into any computer on campus or access your UW email. 


If you are new to the university: To obtain your username and initial password, go to, and click Obtain Username and Initial Password found in the top right hand corner. If you are new to the University of Wyoming, UW accounts and initial passwords are pre-created for all UW faculty, staff, and students once their information has cleared either Human Resources (for faculty and staff) or the Admissions Office (for students).

In order to begin using your account, you will need to change the initial password to one of your own choosing. When you log into WyoWeb for the first time, you will be prompted to change your password. You will not be able to use your account to access your UW email, VPN, or other UW network resources until this has been completed.


If you are currently associated with the university or an alumni and are having problems getting into your account, please contact the UWIT Help Desk at 1-307-766-4357 (6-HELP), option 1.
