International students and scholars must report a change of address to UFIC and UF within 10 days of any move.

Reporting a Change of Address to UF

Students and Exchange Visitors must report a change in home address to the University of Florida each time a move occurs.  Do this by loging into their account at MyUFL using the Gatorlink username and password.  BOTH the UF Directory profile and the Emergency Contact information needs to be updated.

UF users have the following addresses on the UF system:

Emergency Contact Directory Profile

Work Location

Local Home Street Address

Emergency Contact Information

Work Data

Local Home Data 

Permanent Home Data

To meet the federal requirements to keep the home address up-to-date, the Local Home Data and the Local Home Street Address must be the actual PHYSICAL address where the student/exchange visitor lives.  These addresses CANNOT be PO Box addresses; and they must be addresses within the U.S. (not international addresses).
