OIT Person Office: one-stop service for person and account data

The Office of Information Technology recently formed a new group called the Person Office. This office serves as a single-point-of-contact and centrally oversees the quality and consistency of the University’s person and account data. Broadly stated, person data can be thought of as biographic and demographic data, and the data that relates to an individual’s affiliation with Princeton and his or her appropriate access to University technology resources.

The Person Office is the steward for person and account data and is the clearing-house for issues that relate to this data. The office now handles services previously dispersed across OIT. Services include demographic data correction, netID changes, Departmental Computer User (DCU) account creation, requests for account terminations and extensions, online directory updates, and service account maintenance. The Person Office also oversees several functional areas, including PeopleSoft Campus Community, the Interface Hub, Identity Management, Account Management, PUAccess, and other relevant functions.

More information about the Person Office is provided online.

To request assistance with issues that relate to person and account data, submit the online form “Person Office Support Request.”

To speak with a representative of the Person Office, contact Russell Wells, Person Office Manager, by sending e-mail to, or by calling 258-1928.

Requests for assistance from the Person Office can also be placed through the OIT Help Desk. To contact the Help Desk, call 258-4357 (8-HELP), send e-mail to, or chat online from the OIT website at
