Watch the Video
Are you leaving the University of Chicago and wondering how to remove your information in the Directory so that people know that you have left? There are a few things that you should know to take care of that issue yourself.
First off, you must log in to directory.uchicago.edu using your CNetID and password. You can now click on the Welcome button at the top of your screen where you have the ability to edit your own information. Then, you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and locate your contact boxes.
You should simply click on the Edit button to get started. On this page, you will delete or blank out all of your information, modify the ‘Title’ information, and click the Save button at the bottom.
One thing that you must know while deleting your information is that you cannot delete Contact 1. If you have more than one contact, you can delete your Contacts 2-4 and remove most of the information in your Contact 1 listing. The title field can’t be left blank, but you can change your title to something not identifiable as you, such as a dash.
You could also contact your Directory Reviewer, whose name is located under Additional Edits and ask them to delete your information on the Reviewer Site if you prefer not to do it yourself. However, if you do not have a reviewer, you must go through this process on your own.
Now, since you have no contact boxes with information in them, if someone searches your name, you will still appear in the search results, but there will be very little information listed.
You should contact the Directory Office at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Also, if you experience any technical difficulties with this video or would like to make an accessibility related request, please send us a message.
