Change Name/Address/Guarantor

Please promptly carry out the required procedures if your address (or your guarantor's address), guarantor, or name has changed. If you do not carry out these changes, it could prevent you from receiving important messages from the university regarding course registrations and other matters.


Updating procedures

(1) Change to student address

After logging in to keio.jp, select "Various changes" from the top menu (or the top right menu button on a smartphone), and then select "Confirmation/Change of Address" .

  • After the change is registered, it takes approximately one day for the change to be approved (except on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays and university holidays). Once the change of address has been approved, you receive an email to your keio.jp email address notifying confirmation of your change of address. (However, if the change only involves a telephone number or e-mail address, notification e-mail will not be sent.)
  • Due to the large number of applications in the new academic year, approval may take time.
  • Your newly registered address will be reflected on your Student Commuter Certificate, which can be applied for and issued via the Certificate Issuance Service, from 7:00 a.m. the morning after you receive email confirmation of your change of address.
  • If you wish to apply for a Student Commuter Certificate in order to purchase a student commuter pass, please apply for a Student Commuter Certificate from the Certificate Issuance Service after 7:00 a.m. the morning after you receive email confirmation of your change of address.
