Help for Campus DirectoryType the name of the person you’re looking for into the Simple Search and submit the search.
- If they are faculty or staff, their contact information will be shown.
- If you are looking for a student, use the Student Listings search. Some students also make their information private; they won’t show up via search.
If you’re having trouble finding the person, there are lots of ways to improve your search on this page.
To find students, faculty or staff at the University of Idaho, type a name into the search box and press or tap Search. If you don't know the full name of the person you're searching for, just type in their last name.
All searching is case-insensitive. That means that a search for Anderson returns the same results as a search for anderson.
Hard-to-Spell Last Names
If you're not sure how to spell the last name of the person you're looking for, you can sound it out if you search with a question mark.
For example, if you know the last name sounds like “Palouse,” but aren’t sure how to spell it, try entering “palouse?” (with a question mark at the end) in the search box. The search will look for names that sound similar to “Palouse.”
Note: The question mark function only works with last names.
|To find||Type in|
|all the Smiths||smith||Try it|
|all the Smiths whose first names contain a D||d smith||Try it|
|all the David Smiths||david smith||Try it|
|anyone with a last name that sounds like “gets”||gets?||Try it|
|all the Robert Ks||robert k||Try it|
Advanced SearchesThe Advanced Search breaks the search criteria down further, so you can specify more information about the person you're searching for. You can search by details like:
- First name
- Last name
- Email address
- Whether or not you're searching for students or for faculty and staff
Why Advanced Search?
Advanced Search allows you to be more specific about who you're searching for. Sometimes the Simple Search returns too many results or doesn't have the flexibility you need when you don't know someone's exact name. You can also get more results per page with the Advanced Search.
Search by Email Address
Sometimes it's handy to do a reverse lookup to find someone when you only have their email address.
Specify a Last Name with More than One Word
The Simple Search has trouble with last names that have spaces in them. For example, names like von Braun and von Wandruszka confuse the Simple Search into thinking that von is the person's first name. Use Advanced Search to get around this problem.
