Carnegie Mellon University

Directory Service

The Carnegie Mellon Directory Service ( is the central information store of identity information for students, staff, faculty, alumni and guests. Applications across campus may use this central directory for read-only access to CMU identity data (i.e., name, phone, email, department).

Per industry standards, a common set of identity (directory) attributes can be accessed and consumed by any application without requiring a formal request. For applications that use additional identity data or require alternative integration types (e.g., LDAP web services), a request for consultation should be sent.
