Update your address

International students are required under Condition 8533 of their student visa to notify the University of any change of address within 7 days of arriving in Australia or within 7 days of any change of address.

Your address can be updated on StudentConnect. Look under the "personal details" section on the left hand side and choose 'Update your address'.

Please ensure that you also provide us with your current postal address as well as your phone contact details and personal email address.

The University is required under legislation to confirm your contact details at least once every six months. At the start of each compulsory trimester (T1 and T2), you will receive an email from the Deakin International Quality and Compliance team confirming your contact details. If the contact details in the email are correct, you do not need to do anything. If the contact details in the email are incorrect, you must go into StudentConnect immediately and update your details. Failure to do so will mean that you are in breach of a mandatory visa condition. This can result in visa cancellation.


If you intend to go home during the holidays, it is important that you change your postal address to your overseas address. When you return to Australia, you will need to update your address again to reflect your Australian address. This is to make sure that any important correspondence sent by the University reaches you.

Please also be advised that the Deakin International Quality and Compliance team can not update your address for you. This must be done by yourself in StudentConnect.

If you have any questions about this, please contact a Compliance Officer for further information.
