Student Mail Guidelines

  • The U.S. Postal Service delivers mail to all residence halls daily. Packages (from UPS, FedEx, etc.) are also delivered directly to residence halls.
  • Use your full name (no nicknames or shortened names) and dorm address when addressing packages/ mail that you will be receiving. Not using your full name and address will delay your mail.
  • Stamps can be purchased at the Credit Union (located in the Williams Center) and the Bookstore (University Commons). Mailing supplies such as envelopes, padded envelopes, etc. can be purchased at the Bookstore. Mail services does have Priority Mail envelopes and boxes available if needed. If you are shipping a package, you will need to purchase the postage through usps.com. If you are unsure of the weight, you can bring your package to Mail Services and our staff will weigh it for you.
  • Students are assigned a locked mailbox in the main lobby of their residence hall. Carry your mailbox key with you as mail cannot be handed out over the counter as per Federal Post Office regulations.
  • Packages, special delivery, certified, insured, registered, and postage due mail will be held in the residence hall office. Residents in receipt of these items will be notified and may pick up their mail during posted office hours. Students need to produce identification and must sign for these items in person.
  • Mail Services cannot give family members, friends, etc. the addresses of students.
