Update your phone numbers in before security upgrade

Update your phone numbers in
More than 17,500 University of Colorado faculty and staff have verified their phone numbers using the pop-up window in the CU Resources area of The university is asking employees who haven’t yet done so to update their information as soon as possible.

Later this summer, the university will roll out Duo Security’s multi-factor authentication tool, which greatly increases the security of personal information by requiring two layers of authentication before allowing access.

Update your phone numbers now: Multi-factor authentication’s success and usefulness hinges on keeping up-to-date phone numbers in the portal. If you haven’t validated that your phone numbers are correct using the pop-up window in CU Resources, please do so by taking the following steps:

  1. Select your campus portal at or from your campus portal link and log in.
  2. Go to the CU Resources area. A pop-up alert window will ask you to verify your phone information.
  3. Is your information correct? Check the box next to the statement, “This information has been validated and is up to date.”
  4. Is your information incorrect? Click the “Update My Information” link and enter the correct phone numbers.
  5. What if you didn't see a pop-up window? First, make sure you’re in the CU Resources area. From there, select “Employee Profile” from the “Personal Information” menu and verify your phone number(s) and/or update phone numbers, as necessary. Home, cellular, campus 1 and campus 2 phone types will be available for use with the new security tool.
  6. Once you’ve updated your information, you’re all set.
