Your registered addresses

We must have your home and term time address, so please add them in the Addresses channel here.

Your HOME address is your permanent residence in your home country.

Your TERM address is where you are living whilst studying at University.

Any current or future addresses that we have registered for you will be displayed on this page. Past addresses will be hidden but can still be viewed.

This section includes the following:

  • From - The date that the address became or becomes active
  • To - The date that you left or will leave the address
  • Address
  • Telephone
  • Address Type - Whether it is your home address, your term time address, etc
  • Action - Provides any actions available to the entry, i.e. ‘remove’ or ‘copy’.

Editing, Copying and Removing addresses


You are unable to remove an existing address entry. If you have a new address, please add it with the same ‘Address Type’, e.g. Home, Term and a start date of today. This will then change the existing address entry to ‘Past’.


If your HOME and TERM address is the same, please select the copy button. Enter the ‘Address type’, ‘Telephone number’ and ‘Start Date’. Then select ‘Use this address’.


Only future addresses may be removed.

To remove a future address, select the ‘Remove’ button in the ‘Action’ column and you will see a screen that asks you to confirm whether you wish to remove the address. Select ‘Remove this address’ to remove it or ‘Cancel’ to leave the address registered.

To see your past addresses, select the ‘Show Past Addresses’ link and they will be displayed at the top of the list with a light grey background.

  7. You should select the appropriate house name or number from the list of properties displayed. If the address is not listed, then select ‘None of these addresses are correct’.
  8. If the system is unable to recognise the correct address, you will need to contact the University.

  9. Once you have selected the correct address, select the ‘Use selected address’ button.
  10. myUWE will then fill in any missing address details automatically and display options to either ‘Confirm’, ‘Change’, or ‘Cancel’ the address. ‘Cancel’ takes you back to ‘Your registered addresses’. ‘Change’ will take you back to the ‘Add New Address’ page. ‘Confirm’ will add the address and update the student record system.

Important correspondence will be sent from UWE Bristol to the addresses you specify, so you must ensure that you enter your address details correctly and keep them up-to-date.
