Updating Your Mailing Address
You are expected to notify the Registrar's Office when your local, permanent, or
next-of-kin address changes. You should also leave a forwarding address with the
U.S. Postal Service.
You are held responsible for any delay in communications sent
from any University office when that office uses the last address you have
submitted. Check your mail frequently.
You may update your address information by visiting the Change
of Address section on StudentAccess.
For other methods on updating your address, please visit our
Change of Address page. Only you, the student, are allowed to change your address.
The campus directory is updated nightly by OIT.
Therefore, changes made through StudentAccess will be reflected the following day.
University departments and faculty use email to communicate with students. Email is
the preferred method to communicate official notices regarding student status
and important class information. You may set a delivery point that is different
than your UCI email so you do not miss important announcements. Remember to
check your email daily as your mailbox can fill quickly during the first two
weeks of a quarter.
Unless you specifically indicate to the contrary, your address, telephone
number, and email address will be published and released as public information
by the university. If you indicate this information should not be released or
published, your address, telephone number, and email address will not be
published in the campus directory nor will it be released to anyone without your
written authorization (except to authorized University personnel). See our
sections on privacy for more information.
UCI employs an emergency text messaging system to send a
message to your text-enabled cell phone in the event of a campus emergency. You
may enter and update your cell phone number by visiting the Change of Address
section on StudentAccess. Your
cell phone number is private information and will not be published or released
to the public.
