Enrolled in classes at Emory

Log into OPUS and update your address information. Make sure that your address outside the United States is marked as the "Permanent Address," and your local physical address in the United States is marked as the "Local Address." You also have an option to create/select a preferred address which will determine where your mail is sent.

If you reside on campus, put your actual mailing address (PO Box and Emory University) in the "Local Address" field and make sure that your "Dormitory Address" is listed correctly in OPUS. If your dormitory address is incorrect in OPUS, please contact the Emory Housing Office at 404-727-4144 as you cannot change it yourself in the system.

Paid by Emory

Change your address in the Human Resources System. Make sure your US address is in the "Local Address" field and your address outside the United States is in the "Other Address" field.

Provide your full legal name as it appears on your paycheck and your Social Security Number or your seven-digit employee ID number. You will need to provide two address types: your local physical address and your address outside the United States. Please identify these separate addresses clearly in your message.
