Hardware, Software and Systems

There are multiple online and networked resources that can be accessed by members of the UMW community using your UMW NetID and Password. Below is a list of these resources, with links to more information:


As a member of the UMW community, you will need to access University network resources and systems during your time here. Your NetID and Password will be the means by which you will have access to network resources. Each person at UMW is assigned a username known as a “NetID.” Your NetID is up to 8 characters long, and will be used to login to our systems at the University throughout your studies here. info

Initial Temporary/ Default Password

All network and online resources require a password. Upon arrival at UMW, you will be given a temporary/default password. This password is eight characters long, and will be comprised of the first letter of your first name (upper case) + the first letter of your last name (lower case) + the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number* + the 2 digit designation of your birth month (e.g., April =04).  [Note: If you have no Social Security number, a password will be assigned for you.]  You will use this temporary/default password for your first login, and then change your password to a password you choose. Our major systems (Network, Faculty/Staff Email, Banner, myUMW) all use this password; Student Email uses a separate password. You are required to change your NetID password every 90 days. info

Faculty, Staff, and Students may change their Active Directory password with an easy to use form.  IT Security policy allows you to change your password once every 24 hours. info login
