myOWU

This page is about the campus portal at my.owu.edu. The OWU Alumni Community Home is available at community.owu.edu.

A new myOWU portal replaced the previous version on June 29, 2015.  It now supports mobile devices, has an improved interface, and many other new features.

MyOWU is an online portal for OWU faculty, staff and students. Many commonly used resources and websites will be collected in the portal, to serve as a starting point for information and processes at OWU.
