Online Campus Directory – Getting Started

General Information

The UNC Campus Directory site includes a search function, update capabilities for personal information, a reporting function for updates, general information on privacy settings and features, and help documentation.

The following documentation is designed to provide assistance with the update functions included on the site.

The information in the directory reflects data compiled from a variety of administrative systems of record, including the Human Resource Information System (HRIS) and the UNC Payroll System. Information in the directory is refreshed continually to reflect new and updated information entered in these systems.

In addition, changes made to personal information using the Update Personal Information link in the UNC Portal site are transmitted back to those administrative systems and are coordinated with the printed campus directory. Some transmittals are immediate; others take place overnight.

Searching the Directory

The UNC Campus Directory provides telephone, address, URL, and e-mail information about the faculty, staff, and students of UNC-Chapel Hill. Searches can be performed on name, Onyen, personal identification number (PID), department or a combination of these items.

Update Options

Employees, Students and Affiliates who select the Update Personal Information link will go directly into the update form with their personal information. HR Facilitators also have the option to edit entries for people in their departments.
