Your Web Profile

Ask your program assistant to create a MySESP profile for you if you do not have one already. You can modify it in this way:

  • Go to the MySESP home page and log in with your NetID and password.
  • In the left navigation bar, click on "My Profile."
  • Click on any of the headings in the left navigation to make additions or changes in that area.
  • Complete requested information using the appropriate fields and pull-down menus.
  • Click the orange "Add" button toward the bottom of the page to submit information.

Please make sure that your profile is up to date at all times and you have a current high-resolution photo on file. If you have any questions, please contact your program assistant.


All faculty, staff an, students are assigned a phone extension upon arrival at SESP and after a NetID has been activated. To report an equipment problem, please dial 611 from the phone that is affected. Voicemail is also set up the same time a new line is activated; instructions are e-mailed to the individual. Any upgrades to phones, extension reassignments or voicemail resets, or other telephone-related requests should be directed to Laura Salus.


Permanent keys

To request a permanent key, whether a Marlok (used for classrooms and meeting spaces) or a traditional key, you will need to fill out the appropriate key request form. Key request forms are located in 254 Annenberg Hall. Because keys can take several weeks to make, it's best to stop by and fill out your form as soon as you know you will need a key.

Temporary keys

If you forgot your office key at home or need to access a room that you are not assigned a permanent key for, you can use the key box located in 254 Annenberg Hall. We keep on hand keys to almost all spaces in Annenberg Hall. You simply sign the key form and borrow the key you need. When you borrow a key from the key box, you are expected to return the key within 24 hours unless other arrangements have been made with the Dean's Office.


Your program administrator can help you order any supplies you may need for your office.

Onboarding Forms

These forms are essential to make sure new hire receive everything they need in a timely fashion, as well as to ensure that the offboarding process takes place efficiently. Link to SESP forms for new employees and offboarding.
