All J-1 exchange visitors are legally required to update Exchange Visitor Services (EVS) within 10 calendar days of any change to their address or other contact information.

You must email your EVS advisor any updates to satisfy federal regulations.

While at UF, the following addresses must always be current in ONE.UF:

  • Street address
  • Mailing address
  • Legal address

Please see below for proper formatting of US addresses.

Reporting a Change of Address

NOTE: You must email your EVS advisor the update directly.  Updating ONE.UF alone is not sufficient.
