Update Your Personal Information (for WVU Employees)


WVU employees can update their personal information (phone numbers, addresses, and emergency contacts) through MyHR. For more information, view the Updating other personal information section.

Note: Courtesy assignments have this tab as well; however, some of the information being pulled is not maintained in MAP and will not be viewable.

Accessing MyHR to update your phone numbers, addresses, and emergency contacts:

View the Personal Information or Emergency Contact Information interactive videos for a demonstration.

To make updates to your personal information, following these steps:

Note: You will not be able to access MyHR unless you are connected to WVU's network.

  1. Log into portal.wvu.edu.

  2. Click Personal Information under MyHR.

  3. From here, you can make changes to your phone number(s), home address(es), office/mailing address(es), physical/work location. Find the information you wish to change and click the Update button for that section. To make changes to your emergency contact(s), scroll to the bottom and click to Update, Remove or Add a contact. At this time, you cannot update the information in the Basic Details section. To update this information, see below.

    Note: Fax numbers are not in MAP and therefore cannot be updated from MyHR.
  4. Update the information and save.

    Note: If you receive an error when updating your address, email or telephone number, submit your information here. Someone from Employee Payroll Services will update your information and may contact you.
