MyUW Madison - Update Employee Personal Information
Employee personal information can be updated or verified using the Personal Information app. Employees can use the app to edit their preferred name, change campus business email, and access HRS to update other Personal Information such as address and phone.
If you receive an error that your "Data could not be retrieved", please contact your Human Resources representative. The Personal Information app requires HRS data and an employee status to function properly, and your employment status may need to be updated. For further assistance, please contact UW Shared Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or (608)262-0600.
