Your User ID and Password

Staff member helps student on computer.

New students:
Your username and a temporary password were emailed to you shortly after you applied for admission.

Returning students:
If you need to create a new WebAdvisor password, see "Password" below for details. 

Your single login username and password gives you access to these systems:

  • WebAdvisor - the University's online registration system
  • Webmail - the email system to use for all communications with the University 
  • Nexus - the learning management system 
  • Library - the library's online resources and your library account
  • Ellucian GO - free mobile app - For more information and instructions, please see Ellucian GO


If you have forgotten your username, you can retrieve this on WebAdvisor.

  • Go to WebAdvisor and click Log In.
  • Choose "Forgot your Username" 
  • Enter your last name and your alternate (non-UWinnipeg) email address and click submit. (The alternate email address must already be on file with the University.)
  • An email will then be sent to you containing your username.


The new password you create must:

  • not contain parts of your username
  • not contain parts of your first or last name that exceed two consecutive characters
  • be between 9-24 characters in length
  • not be one of your last three passwords
  • contain at least one upper case letter
  • contain at least one lower case letter
  • contain at least one number
  • contain at least one special character from the following list: comma (,), exclamation mark (!), double quotation mark (“), single quotation mark (‘), number sign (#), dollar sign ($), percent sign (%), star (*), plus (+), hyphen (-), underscore (_), period (.), forward slash (/), caret (^),square open parenthesis ([), square closed parenthesis (]), accent grave (`), open parenthesis [(] or closed parenthesis [)]

If your password does not meet this requirement, WebAdvisor will not allow you to update your password.

If you have forgotten your password, use the re-set option: 

  • Click on “Log in” at the top of WebAdvisor and select “Forgot your Password.” 
  • Enter your last name and alternate email address that we have on file for you and click submit.
  • An email will then be sent to you with a link to create a new password in WebAdvisor.

Please note:  Password information can only be sent to an alternate email address already on file with the University.  It cannot be given over the phone or sent to an email address that we do not have on file. If we do not have an alternate email address on file, you can complete a Personal Update form - see Forms - and fax it to 204.783.4996 or email it to studentcentral@uwinnipeg.ca  Alternatively, show a Student Central staff member your photo ID during a Zoom drop in.
