Your MIT ID and the MIT Directory will display your legal name if you do not have a preferred name. To display a different name, you may either set a preferred “Directory Name” in Atlas or complete a legal name change.
To change your preferred “Directory Name” in Atlas:
- Go to Atlas
- Click on “About Me”
- Click on “Personal Information”
- Go to field “Directory Information”
- Click on “Edit”
- Fill out fields for “Directory Name”
- Click "Save"
Updating your ID
Updates are generally reflected in the system within 24 hours.
If you want a physical MIT ID card with your updated name, you can print one at a kiosk or obtain one from the Atlas Service Center after confirming the change is reflected in the MIT Atlas app or the MIT public directory.
