Update Your Current Physical Residence
Twice a year we ask you to update your address, so the university can communicate with you in the event of a fire, medical emergency or active crisis. Usually, those kinds of problems are hypotheticals we want to be prepared for but hope never come.
This year, as you know, the coronavirus has created exactly the kind of urgent situation that we prepare for, and it is more important than ever that you update your address information.
Please update your Current Physical Residence (this is the address where you will be living during spring quarter), located in the "Personal Info" tab in your Cal Poly Portal today. Be sure to do this each time you move. Your personal information will remain strictly confidential and will only be accessed in the case of an emergency by the Office of the Dean of Students and University Police.
Maintaining updated physical addresses is critical to supporting all students in times of need. Having access to this information is especially crucial during emergencies. For example, if there is a hazardous threat at or near a student's off-campus home, the university needs to be able to quickly notify the student and their roommates to ensure everyone's safety and wellbeing. Additionally, the university may send physical mail including Financial Aid checks, commencement-related information, and other important items or documents and we need to know that it is going to the correct address.
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 805-756-0327 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
