Policies on Student Contact Information

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 Request a 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.

Public Information

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indicate this information should not be released or published, your address, telephone number, and email address will not be published in the campus directory nor will it be released to anyone without your written authorization (except to authorized University personnel).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 Your cell phone number is private information and will not be published or released to the public.
