Waterloo Nexus is the Windows 2000/XP student computing environment.
- All registered undergraduate and graduate students automatically get a Waterloo Nexus account. Accounts for new faculty, staff, post-docs, and visiting scholars must be created manually. Please ask your department computer technician or visit the Help Desk for assistance.
- The Nexus log-in browser, available on Nexus workstations, is used to set an initial password for new accounts. Use the "Change Password" link and use your WatIAM/Quest userid and password to authenticate the Nexus password change. N.B. The Nexus password is separate from the WatIAM/Quest password, but can be made the same.
- Your Nexus account stays active while you are registered at UW.
