  How to get a user name 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 UWYO domain username and password, the same account you use to login to any computer on campus or access your UW e-mail. Most alumni since 1987, and alumni who have requested transcripts in the last year, can also access WyoWeb although they will not have UW email available to them.

To obtain your username and initial password, go to http://wyoweb.uwyo.edu,  and click Get Your Username and Initial Password.

If you are new to the University of Wyoming (UW), UWYO 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 use your new 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 e-mail, VPN, or other UW network resources until this has been completed.

For most alums before 1987, prospective students, or UW donors, you can not currently access the features of WyoWeb, but we are working hard to finish the projects that will provide you access. Watch for additional information on when and how you will access WyoWeb.

If you think you should have a username and password but you do not know what they are, contact the IT Help Desk at 307-766-4357 (6-HELP), option 1.
