Wits Self Service

The University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa, offers a Student Self-Service Portal. MyWits is the student portal that gives you easy, convenient access to the information you need as a Wits student. 

Below is the breakdown:

  • What can I do on this Portal?: The portal allows you to perform various academic activities.
  • How to Register/Login: Open your internet browser and go to the Wits Student Self-Service Portal. Log in with your username and password.
  • Password: For current students, your password is your current student password. For applicants, your password is your date of birth in (YYMMDD) format.
  • Phishing Alert!: Given the rise in cybercrime, before making any payment to the University, verify that the account into which payment is to be made is a legitimate bank account of the University.

  • If you are made a firm offer, you will receive an SMS offer and a firm offer letter via email from the University.
