FAQs - labs

Students will find the answers to some of their most common questions and concerns here.

Effective immediately, all students will be required to activate or ‘claim’ their University labs account in order to be able to log into any of the student computers on campus. (labs, Uplink, etc)

Each student will be required to go through this process a minimum of once every 13 months in order to keep their labs account in good standing.  Otherwise, the labs account will automatically expire, at which point it will be mandatory to log back into the ClaimID portal and renew the account.

The process is straight-forward and can be done from virtually any web-browser; even from a smartphone.

  • Log into: http://myidm.uwinnipeg.ca
  • Enter your Student ID and the same password as WebAdvisor in the fields on the main page and click “Login”
  • On the new page, click on the “Edit Your Details” link located under the Student Details heading.
  • You will need to type “yes” (no quotes) in the field located to the left of “Account Create-Renew”.
  • Click the “Save Changes” button to activate the labs account.
  • Finally, click the “Logout” link near the top of the page to finish.

At this point your labs account has been activated and you will be able to log into the various student computers on campus.
