UW-Superior Password Instructions

Changing your UW-Superior password is critical to protecting your information and the information you have access to through your accounts.

Every Student, Staff, and Faculty member at UW-Superior is issued a User ID and password for our campus network, email, and E-Hive access. It is critical for your own information security, as well as to that of others, that you protect these credentials from possible fraudulent use. The easiest way to do this is to change your password frequently. Technology Services requires a password change by users at least every 180 days. To change your password, follow these easy steps from on or off campus:

  1. Go to www.uwsuper.edu in your web browser.
  2. Click on the Campus Logins at the top of the page
  3. Select UW-Superior Portal Login
  4. Select the button titled “Change My Password”
  5. Enter your username
  6. Enter your current password and select continue
  7. It will bring you to the Set Password box. Enter your new password and select continue.

If you don't know your password, or are setting up your password for the first time:

  1. Follow steps 1 through 3 above, then click on the link below the log-in that says "New/Forgot Password”.
  2. Enter your username and select whether you would like to answer your three challenge questions or use a one time passcode. Select continue.
  3. If you selected to answer your challenge questions, enter the answers and click continue.
  4. If you selected “One Time Passcode”, you will use the One Time passcode obtained from the Technology Help Desk.
  5. After answering the Challenge Questions or entering the One Time Passcode, you will be asked to create a new password. Enter your new password and continue.

This process will reset your E-Hive, Campus email, Learn@UW-Superior, SAFE Alerts, and Network log-ins. After completing the process the next time you log-in you will need to use the new password you set. It is suggested that you memorize the password and not write it down. By changing your password frequently you are protecting your data and privacy as well as information you may have access to as a function of your university position. If you have any questions about changing your password please contact our Technology Help Desk.
