MyUW System Portal - Update Employee Personal Information

Soon Universities of Wisconsin employees will notice a different look when accessing
This change will not apply to UW-Madison or Flex employees.

Instead of reaching the MyUW portal, you'll use the new HRS and Campus Dashboard. For more information about this transition, check out the HR, Payroll and Benefits News announcement.

Employee personal information can be updated or verified using the Personal Information app. Employees can use the app to edit their campus business email and access HRS to update other Personal Information such as address and phone.
UW System employees (including student employees) are eligible to use the MyUW System Personal Information app. For UW-Madison employees, please see 7132.
