If you are a current student, you can update your address by logging onto the Student Services Portal. Click on Student Center Login > Self Service > Campus Personal Information > Addresses. Choose the address type, click "Edit" and enter your new address.

Some students have multiple home addresses, so a new address type entitled "Home 2" has been created.
