Address Change

All off-campus students are required to report their local and/or permanent address to the university. Students should notify the university of a change of address within five days of a move. Students who fail to change their address when they relocate will miss important university mailings.

If you are an on-campus resident, the Housing and Residence Life Office will file your local (residence hall room, apartment) address with the university.

In Person
In person, you can change your address at the Student Service Center, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock, or the Help Desk, 107 Learning Resources Center. Business hours are from
8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. During the summer, business hours are from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.


The Web
You can update your address and telephone number on the web at mynmu.nmu.edu.


By Mail or Fax
In order to change your address by mail or fax, fill out the address change form or mail a letter including your name, NMU IN and signature. Be sure to specify which address you are updating -- local, permanent and/or emergency contact. If  you fax your address change, please include a photocopy of your drivers license to verify your signature. Fax form to 906-227-2231.


Defining Addresses
Generally the student will list their permanent address as the address where they reside when the university is not in session. The local address should reflect where they reside while the university is in session if different from the permanent address.

Local: The address at which the student resides when the university is in session if different from the permanent address.

Permanent: The address at which the student resides when the university is not in session.

Emergency contact/next of Kin: The name, address and telephone number of the person to be contacted in case of an emergency, usually the parents address.

NOTE: Announcements for graduation or being named to the dean's list are sent to the hometown newspaper of a student's permanent.
