MyUW Madison - Update Employee Personal Information
Employee personal information can be updated or verified using the Personal Information app in MyUW. Employees can use the app to edit their Name in Use (formerly known as preferred name), change campus business email, and access the Human Resources System (HRS) to update other personal information such as address and phone.
Update Personal Information
Formerly known as preferred name, employees can update their name in use by clicking Edit. You will be taken to the Name in Use MyUW app to Change or Delete your name in use to be displayed across campus systems.
Please see MyUW Madison - Update Name in Use (Preferred Name) for instructions and policies.
To update the email address you wish to receive campus business communications from, click Change. Your campus wisc.edu email address can be changed using the Wisc Account Administration application.
The home address that displays in this app is the home address you have in the Human Resources System (HRS).
Employees can click Update my Personal Information to access HRS Self-Service and update the following:
Addresses (Home & Mail)
Contact Details (Phone & Email)
Preferred Name: Note - this is different from UW-Madison’s Name in Use; this reference is only for a field called “preferred” first name in HRS that may update your first name in some screens in HRS.

Coordination of Benefits
If after launching the app, 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 email@example.com or (608)262-0600.
