2. I'm a first year student and I can't log in.

After registration for this Academic year, you should have received a notice in the mail with a "temporary" computer account consisting of a username/password. You must first "activate" this account:

  1. Log in to WebAdvisor - using this temporary username/password
  2. Change your password - this "activates" your account. Passwords must be 6-9 characters long; containing both numbers and letters.

Your username and new password can now be used for all UW computing services: nexus, email, WebAdvisor, etc.

Note: If you have lost/misplaced your notice containing info about this temporary account, contact the Service Desk by phone (204) 786-9149, email servicedesk@uwinnipeg.ca, or come in person to Uplink (4C32B) Monday – Friday 9:00am-6:00pm.

3. I can't log in.

Use your regular university username and password.  It is the same login you use for WebAdvisor or a computer lab on campus.

If you cannot log in, please contact the Service Desk:

Phone: 204-786-9149
Email: servicedesk@uwinnipeg.ca
Visit Uplink (4C32B): Monday – Friday 9:00am-6:00pm
 
Please note: Even a correct login may be rejected if you do not have a course in Nexus.  If you are not sure you have a course in Nexus, check your course materials or ask the instructor.

4. I registered for my course after the first day of class and I can't log in.

If you registered late, it may take a day or two before you are entered into the system and given access to your nexus course site.

5. I don't see the course I expect.

If you are sure that you should be enrolled in a Nexus course, you may not see the course for a few reasons.

  1. The course has not started yet.
  2. The course has been finished for more than 30 days.
  3. Your registration was processed within the last day. All new registrations are processed overnight so it will take at least 24hrs to gain access to your Nexus course after you register for a new course.
