SharePoint Online, no Access to User Profiles?

I need to access a User Profile property from a sandboxed event receiver in a SharePoint Online site. I tried using code like:

    Dim svrCtx As SPServiceContext = SPServiceContext.Current
    Dim usrMan = New UserProfileManager(svrCtx)

Doesn't work. Is there an alternate way to access User Profile properties from a sandbox?

I don't want to use the User Information list. The User Profile should be the single source of data so there's only one master copy of the value to manage.

Thanks!

At first I thought you were suggesting the User Information List, which I didn't want to use. But I see that the article mentions automatic sync with the User Profile and THAT is acceptable.  Thanks!
