OIS must have your current residential address at all times. You must report any change in residential address to within 10 days of moving.  This information gets sent to OIS and then we send that information to SEVIS.  The residential address is the actual physical address of where you live in the U.S.  A departmental address or P.O. Box is not acceptable.
