This page gives information about the three accounts that are in use at WSU, along with a brief description of important systems. If you need further assistance with your account information, please contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827 or toll free at 1-888-775-4827.
A campus account, commonly referred to as your "w" id or username, is the account you use to log in to computers on campus and to access WINGS, the university portal. The username for this account has the following format: w###abc, where the pound signs represent a set of three numbers, and the "abc" represents your initials. You are responsible for any improper or illegal activity that occurs on this account. These activities include, but are not limited to, harrassment of others through electronic communication and use of university resources for business purposes. Therefore, account owners should not share their password with anyone for any reason. Misuse of resources can result in the loss of account privileges and charges filed with the appropriate university offices.
A printed copy of your campus account information can be obtained at the Help Desk in 025 Library Annex. To change the password for your campus account, visit the WINGS website, located at wings.wright.edu and click on the "Forgot Your Password?" link.
University ID (UID)
Your 9-digit University Identification Number (UID) is assigned to you when you apply as a student or become affiliated with Wright State University. Your UID never changes and is never re-used. It replaces the use of your Social Security Number as a permanent, unique ID number identifying you as a member of the university community. The UID, along with your PIN, is used to access the WINGS Express system.
RaiderMail is WSU's email and calendar service, and it requires its own username and password that is different than your "w" username and your UID. Your username is your current WSU email address (i.e. email@example.com for faculty/staff and firstname.lastname@example.org for students). To learn more about the RaiderMail account, including how to reset the password, see the RaiderMail Password Information website.
WINGS is an electronic portal used by the WSU community to access various systems, services, and information from one location. Log in using your campus account to access your email, personal calendar, announcements, course software, and WINGS Express. Visit WINGS at the following location: http://wings.wright.edu.
WINGS Express is a personal, self-service site located within WINGS for student, faculty, and staff services, such as registration, grades, financial aid, scholarship awards, web time entry, and much more. To access WINGS Express, click the WINGS Express icon in the upper right corner of WINGS.
