did you know?

  • ITS provides a 24/7 Voice Activated Directory of NYU staff and faculty telephone numbers. Call 1-212-998-
    1212, select 1, then speak or dial the name of the person who you are trying to reach.
  • You can set a personal email address of your choosing to use as an alternative to your NetID email address. You can then choose to use this address in your NYU Directory listing.

About the NYU Directory

The NYU Directory contains the names, addresses, email addresses, and other information for all NYU faculty, staff, and administrators, as well as students who have chosen to be listed. It also contains campus facility information. It can be accessed through the Directory channel in the Home tab of NYUHome, at www.nyu.edu/search.directory.html, and via the "Search..." box that appears at the top of pages on the main NYU website. Note: When using the "Search..." box on NYU web pages, click the "People" link to search the NYU Directory (as opposed to searching the entire NYU website).

Voice Activated Directory

You can be connected by telephone to NYU faculty, staff, and administrators by calling NYU's main number at 1-212-998-1212. This service combines voice recognition, dial-by-name functionality, and other technologies to locate a listing requested by a caller, and then transfer them to the appropriate phone number. Note that the NYU Directory and Voice Activated Directory are separate services.

Change Your Directory Listing: Staff, Faculty, Administrators and Contractors

All NYU faculty, staff, administrators and affiliates are automatically listed in the NYU Directory. If your name is not included in the NYU Directory or the Voice Activated Directory, please submit a request for help with your name and NYU NetID (found on your NYUCard) using the Ask ITS contact form at www.nyu.edu/its/askits/contactus.

If your information has changed, you find an error in your listing, or you would like to add information like a preferred name, website address, or additional phone number, consult the matrix below for information on how to update your directory information.

Your NYU Directory Address

By default, the email address listed in the NYU Directory is NetID@nyu.edu where "NetID" is your NYU NetID. If you wish, you can choose to have an additional Personal email address, which automatically directs messages to your NetID@nyu.edu address. If you haven't already created a Personal address, log into your NYUHome Preferences. Under the options for Your E-mail, find "Personal address," click EDIT, then follow the instructions provided. Setting a Personal address will automatically set your Directory address.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you search for a specific person in the Directory and can't find a listing, it may be due to one or more of the following issues:

  • The person may be listed under a nickname or under their full name. Try searching for them using their last name only.
  • He or she may be a new staff or faculty member. There is a short processing time between the day a person is hired and the day their listing is added to the Directory. Try again in a few days.
  • He or she may be a student who has opted not to include their listing in the NYU Directory (see above).
  • The search term or name must be at least three characters long
