$225 Housing Deposit (required of all residents)
To secure a room on campus, please pay your $225.00 housing deposit using the UIW ePayment Center located in the MyWord portal.
MyWord Portal Login Instructions Only:
MyWord portal Login User ID is the prefix to your UIW email, if your email is email@example.com, then your username is cardinal.
Your UIW student ID # is your default MyWord portal password, or it will be the password to your cardinal email account.
Upon your first login, you will be required to reset your password and answer security questions for your MyWord portal account. You may then proceed to the UIW e-Payment Center to make your housing deposit.
Deposit date will be used as a factor to determine room selection priority. Please allow 1-2 business days to process your deposit.
Meningitis Immunization Verification (required of all new residents)
In order to take advantage of ALL housing application steps, students are encouraged to submit proof of their meningitis immunization by the recommended dates of March 1st (fall applicants) or Decemeber 1st (spring applicants). Health Services will continue to accept this documentation beyond the recommended dates. The immunization must have been administered within the last five years and at least ten days prior to check-in. Documentation may be sent:
UIW has contracted with Magnus Health to manage your student health records. You need to submit proof of your Meningitis vaccine to your Magnus Health account for UIW. You will receive an email that contains a username and password for your account. The email will contain brief instructions that explain how you should access the account. If you do not receive this email or if you have further questions, please contact the Magnus Health Help Desk at 877-461-6831. We suggest checking your spam mail as the initial email will come from Magnus rather than UIW.
The following instructions will guide you through creating your account, deciding which document you need to submit, how each document should be submitted, and asking questions.
