Each residence hall has post office boxes provided for residents’ use. Your room key will open your mailbox. U. S. mail is delivered to the residence halls once daily by University personnel Monday through Saturday. Mail is not delivered during breaks, three-day weekends, or on national holidays. Packages are also brought to your residence hall mail room.
Mail is distributed by the Hall Mail Staff as quickly as their work and class schedules allow. The goal is to have all mail and package slips in residents’ boxes by 3:00 p.m. on days mail is delivered.
To facilitate quick mail service, please have your mail addressed completely. Notify your family and friends of your correct address, as soon as possible. Please note the example and chart below for your hall, box number, and zip+four numbers. The standard zip code for all of campus is 57007.
