All F-1 and J-1 students are required to report and maintain a local U.S. address with the Department of Homeland Security within 10 days of arrival for new students and within 10 days of any address change. This must be your local residential address complete with room number (if you are living within a residence hall) or apartment number. Campus departmental addresses, P.O. Boxes, and foreign addresses are not acceptable addresses for immigration purposes.
Report or update your address through ULink. This will forward your new address electronically to the Department of Homeland Security through the SEVIS system. Also, send an email to your international advisor or the ISSS service account at firstname.lastname@example.org with the new address enclosed.
Students who fail to report this information as required will be in violation of their F-1 status and may endanger their opportunities for future benefits in the United States.
