Congratulations on your acceptance to University of Northwestern – St. Paul!

We’re hoping that your admitted student portal will serve as a guide for your next steps on your journey to Northwestern. There, you should be able to find answers to some of your key questions. If there is anything else we can help answer for you, don’t hesitate to give our Admissions Office a call at 651-631-5111.

Your admitted student portal will display your username and a password to login to myUNW, which will be your "home base" as a student. If you've misplaced your login credentials, or experience technical issues, you can get help by calling 651-631-5699 or sending an email to the service desk
