Wolverine Access Gateway interface updates coming soon


Wolverine Access, the university’s internal system for finding the U-M tools and resources faculty, staff and students use frequently, is getting a freshened look and enhanced usability July 15.

Wolverine Access is used to enter time, check benefits, log in to Concur for expense reports, and serve as a starting point to log in to email, among many other options.

It offers the option to personalize a user’s homepage (when logged in) by linking to all the university tools one needs as a member of the U-M community in the “My Favorite Links” section and organizing a user’s layout.

The following changes are planned:

  • A larger search bar.
  • Menus have been simplified.
  • “Home” and “Favorites” are now on the left. Previous bookmarks and favorites will carry over.
  • Browsing categories and organizing one’s individual layout is easier.
  • It is more straightforward to find the User Dropdown menu to update preferences, sign out, and more.
  • The yellow menu at the top has moved to a pinned section in the center.
  • New Announcements have moved to the right and can be dismissed any time. A list of Announcements can be found on the left.

“Our goal is to provide the campus community with user-centric tools and resources to enhance teaching and learning, research, patient care, and university business. Wolverine Access is the resource to keep you connected to so much of what the university offers,” said Ravi Pendse, vice president for information technology and chief information officer.
