About myVCU


What is myVCU?
myVCU is a password protected portal that allows you to view and, in some cases, update your personal and VCU employee information. You can view your leave balances, upcoming university events, announcements, Blackboard courses in which you are enrolled, and more. For help with accessing myVCU, contact the VCU Help Desk at helpIT@vcu.edu or 804-828-2227.

How do I update my personal information?
Once you are logged into myVCU, click on eServices/VCU Self Service (on the right) to access the Banner database. Click on the “personal information” tab to update your address and phone number, emergency contact information, veteran or disability status and more. Be sure to click submit after you make changes. Note to employees who receive health benefits through the Commonwealth of Virginia: When updating your home mailing address in Banner, be sure to also update your contact information in Employee Direct at https://edirect.virginia.gov/. First-time users will need the employee number on your healthcare insurance card to access Employee Direct. Select “health benefits enrollment information” to update your information. Questions? Email benefits@vcu.edu.
