Loyola University Maryland

Records Office

Changing Name/Address

All students are required to provide updated permanent home address and contact information to the University on a yearly basis. Students living off campus are also required to provide their local address and cell phone information to the University according to instructions from the Office of Student Life. This is to ensure accuracy of this information so that the University can reach students for business purposes and in cases of emergency. As outlined in the Community Standards (section 14.j.), failure to provide this information may result in the student's inability to register for classes and/or removal from registered classes, the loss of campus privileges, and/or a fine.

Home address and contact information may be submitted and/or updated using the following methods:

Chosen Name

The University is currently in the process of implementing a Chosen Name Policy. In the interim, students can request to have a chosen name on their University ID card, email display name, and the web directory. To submit this request, students should contact the Dean of Students at cjspearman1@loyola.edu.

The Records Office is working to implement a self-service process for students to request to use a chosen name across various University systems, and more information will be provided on this site in the summer of 2021.

International Students

International students are required by Immigration Services to provide a foreign address and a local U.S. address. The foreign address is considered your home address and the U.S. address is considered your local address. If you wish to update your U.S. address, please contact the International Student Advisor in the Office of International Student Services, 410-617-5245.
