Whether you live in a dorm or a Village Apartment or another apartment off-campus, you need a mailing address immediately, upon arrival. If you live on-campus, you will need your University student number (990 number) to get a mailing address. You will need your new address to get a bank account and for your Immigration and Insurance check-in with the International Student Office.
Write down your UWF student 10 number, your address, and your new telephone number when you get it and keep all of them with you at all times. If you live in a dormitory or the Village Apartments, check-in with Housing and then go the U.S. Post Office on the 1st floor of The Commons, Building 22. Show or give the postal worker your UWF student ID number and housing receipt (if you have it) and tell them you are an international student. Ask for a Post Office Box. There is no fee for a Post Office Box. If you live off-campus, use the address where you are living.
