UW-Madison Directory Assistance is an automated directory, department and events lookup system. This system is a voice-driven directory and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The system uses a conversational style search that can handle accents, nicknames, and names that sound similar or may be spelled in different ways.
Callers dial 262-1234 for UW-Madison and 266-2211 for the State of Wisconsin and receive an automated directory instead of an operator. Operator backup is available through the Visitor and Information Programs Office 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
In addition to Centrex telephone numbers, the automated directory provides selected information about campus events. Callers have the option to connect to their destination Centrex number.
If you find that the name of the person or department you’re looking for is mispronounced or for some reason can’t be located in the directory, we would like to make the changes necessary to make it work for you. See the instructions below.
