This section is for members of the UC Berkeley community who wish to have a lived name used in campus systems for display and/or use by university staff. With the implementation of the GRLN policy, your lived name should be displayed and used across all university systems and documents unless a legal name is required. Please note that UC Berkeley is in the process of implementing the GRLN policy and not all systems have reached full compliance.
Names are collected and updated in several main systems that flow to most other campus systems. Please see below for instructions on updating your name in these systems to the name you wish to be used and displayed when interacting with others on campus. Depending on which systems you update your name in, your lived name may be visible to those who you have given access to view your university records such as tuition & fees.
