Logging into your courses in Canvas

How to log into your courses in Canvas

Accessing your courses in Canvas through a web-browser

Go to canvas.uw.edu and login with your UW NetID. Canvas works best with the Firefox or Chrome browser.

Accessing your courses in Canvas through MyUW

You can also access the Canvas login in MyUW in the Quick Links box on the left side of the screen. Students are automatically enrolled in Canvas courses for which they have registered.

Note: You will not see a course until the instructor has published it in Canvas. If you are registered for a course, but don’t see it in MyUW, contact your instructor.

Accessing your courses in Canvas through the Canvas mobile app

The Canvas Student app is the mobile version of Canvas that helps students stay current with their courses anywhere. You can download the Canvas Student app on both Android and iOS devices.
