Address

The University maintains three mailing addresses for use by University systems, Directory Release, and other official purposes. Students are expected to maintain address information current.

Address Types

Local Address
Local Address is a postal-recognized location of a student and is used when the student is actively attending classes at the UW.
Permanent Address
The permanent address is a postal-recognized location (NOT a PO Box) which an applicant, student, or former student identifies as their permanent address on their application.
Parent Address
Parent Address is a postal-recognized location of a student’s guardians and is used when the student is actively attending classes at the UW.

Where Addresses are Used

Students can indicate whether to use their Local or Permanent Address for tuition-related information, registration confirmations, financial aid mailing, and their diploma within MyUW/Student Personal Services (SPS).
