Personal Information

Personal Information

It is important to keep your McGill records up to date with your personal information, especially your mailing or billing address, as these are used by the University year-round. 

You must update your address(es) and/or telephone number(s) and emergency contact information on Minerva under the Personal Menu. 

If you are away from campus and do not have access to the Internet, you can request changes by writing to your Student Affairs Office or to Service Point. Your written request must include your signature. 

If you need to change important personal information that requires the University to verify official documents—such as a name or citizenship change, or a correction of your birth date—refer to the instructions at mcgill.ca/student-records/personal-information/address. Macdonald campus students can request changes in person at the Macdonald Campus Student Affairs Office, Laird Hall, Room 106. 

Note for continuing studies

If you need to change important personal information that requires the University to verify official documents, such as a change to your name or citizenship, or a correction of your birth date, you must go in person (as soon as possible) to the School of Continuing Studies Client Services Office. Such changes can only be made in person at the School of Continuing Studies, Client Services Office, 688 Sherbrooke Street West, Room 1199. 

Note for nursing

A Quebec address and telephone number are required for Nursing students on Minerva to meet OIIQ registration requirements.
