How to Change Contact Information in the Online Directory
All changes to your listing should be made through either the Registrar or your payroll office. (The information collected by these offices may update other resources besides this online directory - e.g. hardcopy directories.)
- Phone number: go to the Student Center online service, which is accessible via the My Home tab in My UW-Madison
- Email Address: your campus e-mail address is the one that will show up in the online directory. Home e-mail address set up in the Student Center will not show up in the online directory. To change your campus e-mail address (due to marriage, e.g., or other reasons) you must go through DoIT. (608) 264-4357.
- Name: contact the Office of the Registrar -- (608) 262-3811
- Title, division, department, work phone, or work e-mail: contact your payroll office
- Students can add a preferred name, in addition to their legal name, under the student personal information portal under the Student Services tab (in MyUW).
Faculty and Staff
UW-Madison employees can change their office phone number via My UW-Madison (via the Personal Information module). Other fields of information need to be changed through your unit’s payroll coordinator.
Employee Information changes will be reflected on the online directory, campus mail labels and centrex operator information throughout the year. Contact the Office of the Secretary of the Faculty at 263-5740 to revise an emeritus listing.
