Keep Your Address Up to Date In CAESAR


When moving, all students need to update their local address in CAESAR, as this information will allow the university to contact and find you for any sort of health or safety concern even if you are living off-campus.

Another benefit is simply helping your campus/personal mail and packages catch up with you as you move between residences while at Northwestern. Unfortunately, we had to return a great number of packages and letters last summer as students failed to leave a forwarding address with the University mail centers or with the U.S. Postal Service.

So, if you have changed your living location and moved from one, to any of the following, you should visit your CAESAR account immediately, and update your address:  a Residence Hall, a Residential College, a fraternity or sorority chapter house, an off-campus residence, a new internship relocation, or are studying abroad.
