What is the Online Directory?

The Online Directory, also known as the White Pages or People Search, provides contact information about students, staff, and faculty members at UGA. A typical entry includes an individual's phone number, postal address, e-mail address, departmental affiliation, and job title.

How Do I Access the Online Directory?

Go to:

http://www.uga.edu

Type the name of the person you are trying to contact in the search field and press the search button (or hit Enter).

 

Access to People Search

Access to the UGA Directory and the People Search application is limited to the UGA campus network.

This change is part of the ongoing efforts to improve information security and help protect the privacy of UGA students, faculty, and staff.

If you are a UGA student, faculty or staff member and need to access the UGA Directory or People Search, you will need to log in to the Central Authentication Service (CAS) if you are off the campus network. If you are on the campus network, you do not need to log in to CAS.

You can also ask for name and telephone information by contacting UGA Directory Assistance at 706-542-3000.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change my information in the online phonebook?

Students:

  • Change all address information via Athena. Specifically, under Student Records --> Change Address Information

  • Students wanting to change their name must fill out and submit a Name Change form to the Registrar's Office.

Faculty/Staff:

  • All official email communications to UGA faculty and staff from administrative systems are sent only to UGAMail addresses.

What is a FERPA restriction?

A FERPA restriction is a privacy option. Details about FERPA can be found at:

 http://www.reg.uga.edu/ferpa_privacy_act

Basically, FERPA has the following repercussions:

  • It removes all evidence of the individual from the online directory
  • It removes all evidence of the individual from the printed directory.
  • It removes the individual from any/all UGA press releases (this includes things like the published Dean's List)
  • It removes the individual from any/all Commencement Lists
  • If any third party contacts UGA to confirm information about a student (even legitimate ones like credit card companies or prospective employers), UGA cannot disclose any information on an individual by that name.
  • This restriction is persistent after graduation.
