You can change how your name is displayed on our website, in most cases.

Please note: this only changes it for the Union. You may want to contact UCL directly to update your name on your student record and other systems - the Union provides a full guide to changing your name, and you can also read UCL's guidance on this.

  1. Make sure you are logged in.
  2. Go to "My account" in the top right.
  3. Go to the "Edit" tab.
  4. Change your name in the "Full name" box.
    • Please note any advice given above the box, including noting that if your data is drawn from UCL's student system your name change may be overridden by updated data at some point. To prevent this, e.g. if you are having issues with UCL not updating your name, you can check the box "Prevent name from being updated from UCL student data" to keep the name as you have entered it here.
  5. Scroll down and click "Save".
