About Library Accounts

Library accounts enable you to place requests, view your loans, renew your books, and review your search activity. Library accounts for students, staff, and faculty are automatically generated from the University system managed by Student Central

Login Credentials


Student users login using their Webadvisor username and password. More information about obtaining and resetting network credentials can be found on the Technology Sector's passwords page for students.

You can update your address, phone number, or email by logging into Webadvisor and navigating to Current Students > Academic Profile > Address Change. To update your name, you must submit a personal update form. A legal name change requires supporting documentation, but a chosen name does not.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff login using their network username and password, which is the same as your computer login, Webadvisor, and Colleague account. View the Technology Sector's passwords page for faculty and staff if you need assistance. 

UWinnipeg employees can update their address, phone number, and email by completing HR’s online change of address form. To update your name contact HRIS@uwinnipeg.ca.

Everyone Else

If you do not have a UWinnipeg network account, your username is your 14 digit library card number. If you have never logged in to your account before, you must click "Set/Reset Password" and follow the directions to create your password. An email address is required to access your online account. 

Patrons who are not currently enrolled at or employed by the University may update their account information by contacting the Circulation Department. Please provide your 14-digit library barcode for account verification.
