Starfish - Faculty Updating Your Profile

Faculty Profile

The Institutional Profile is what students and others in the Starfish system see - including your picture, contact information, and background. Some information is automatically populated from Banner (like your picture). You will want to review that information to make sure it is accurate and add any missing information.

Find Your Profile


Once you are logged into Starfish, select the "hamburger" icon (the three lines) in the upper left-hand corner to open the left menu.


Select your name and then Institutional Profile.

  • Review the information imported from Banner and make any changes for accuracy, particularly contact information,
  • Please add any information you want students to know when reaching out to you under General Overview and a brief biography

Note: Under your Institutional Profile, you are also able change your starting point when you login to Starfish.
You may find it useful to change "Login Page" to a Students or Appointments choice.

Create Meeting Locations


Select the Appointment Preferences tab


Go down to My Locations. Locations are needed in order to set up Office Hour availability. Select Add Location to create all locations you may need (e.g., multiple campuses, phone, and online).


A pop-up window will appear titled Add Location. If you have multiple locations for your office hours, each location needs to be added one at a time.

Under Name include campus, if needed.
Under Instructions, include specific information students will need, such as "check in at front desk", "knock before entering", "back cubicle". For Phone or Online locations include phone number and/or login information (e.g., use Collaborate in Blackboard). Select Save to save location and start another.
