MyUW System Portal - 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 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.

Access the Personal Information App

Log in to MyUW at and locate the Personal Information app. If needed, search for the app at the top of your homepage.
