Employee Self Service is a new tool that allows CUNY faculty and staff the best opportunity to have the most accurate personal information. CUNY staff can post and update information and work with Human Relations to keep records current.

What personal information can I change by myself?

  • Home and work phone numbers
  • Add secondary email addresses (your CUNY/College email must remain your primary CUNYfirst address)
  • Emergency Contacts
  • Professional Memberships
  • Home Addresses (must also notify HR)
  • Marital Status (must also notify HR)
  • Name Change (must also notify HR)
  • Social Security Number (must also notify HR)
  • New or re-submitting I-9 (must also notify HR)
  • New or advanced college degree (must also notify HR)

Additionally, you can apply for available posititions within CUNY through the CUNYfirst system here »

We encourage all employees to periodically check their Employee Self Service profile to confirm all information is up-to-date and correct.
