Changing your name requires certified documentary evidence to support your request. If a name change request is received without documentation, it cannot be processed.


Updating your contact details (email and address)

It's important that your contact details are correct so that you can receive reminders and other information by both mail and email.

If you are graduating in absentia we will post your graduation certificate to you so ensure your address is up to date so it reaches you safely.

You can update your mailing address via my.unimelb.
