We report extensive photometry of the dwarf nova QW Ser throughout its February 2003 superoutburst untill quiescence. During the superoutburst the star displayed clear superhumps with a mean period of days. In the quiescence we observed a double humped wave characterized by a period of days. As both periods obey the Stolz-Schoembs relation with a period excess equal to %, the latter period is interpreted as the orbital period of the binary system
