Your account at the UW is identified by a UW NetID. Your UW NetID (and its password) provides access to many UW online resources, including MyUW and UW Email. Change your password regularly to help keep your work secure. You can change your password yourself online.
In the toolbar at the top of MyUW, click My Account.
This takes you to the Manage UW NetID Resources page.
In addition to changing your password, from this page you can also activate and manage services such as UW Google Apps and UW Windows Live, and change your email options.
