Welcome to UMW’s New Website!

Have you noticed the fresh look at umw.edu?

new website launch

Launched at the beginning of the year, UMW’s new website includes nearly 100 redesigned pages focused on what matters to prospective students! We hope you love it as much as we do!

If you’re missing some of your usual go-to’s, here are some helpful hints:

  • If you’re looking for the toolbar that appeared at the top of pages and included functions such as Banner, Canvas, Email and MyTime, you’ll now find it at umw.edu/in, which includes even more resources for faculty, staff and students. (You might want to save this page as your web browser homepage if you frequently use the toolbar or need a landing page and quick reference for these tools. The steps to do this will depend on the browser you prefer with options provided on the internal resources page.)
  • If you want to go directly to email, try https://webmail.umw.edu/.
  • The top-level navigation is linked from the top-right corner. There you’ll find quick access to email, the directory and calendar, as well as audience-specific pages.
  • Information about the Great Lives series and other upcoming public events can be found at umw.edu/arts/. We hope you’ll enjoy exploring these annual programs, inspiring events, and UMW’s museums and galleries.
  • One of the quickest ways to find the information you seek is to use the search bar in the top right corner. That will display pages from the new site as well as the existing site, providing the latest information is available.

Thanks to the many individuals who’ve been working hard for more than a year to bring this new site to life. The University Communications web team will continue a phased approach to the redesign, targeted to rolling out updates every six weeks and working beyond high-priority, recruitment-focused pages to the many other offices and units across campus.

Additional online updates include  a new website for Simpson Library and Digital Learning Support’s launch of Sites@UMW as a replacement for UMW Blogs.

All questions and concerns about umw.edu’s new look should be sent to webmaster@umw.edu! Feedback about the new library site should go to Systems Librarian Gardner Treneman at gtrenema@umw.edu. And questions about Sites@UMW, which now includes UMW Blogs and Domain of One’s Own, should be routed to Digital Learning Support at dls@umw.edu or may be answered by visiting the project webpage
