COVID-19 Updates: Stay Informed


Each apartment complex 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 delivered by USPS are also brought to your apartment mail room. Packages delivered by UPS, FedEx, or another delivery service are brought to the Hansen 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. Make sure you are using the zip code 57006, as opposed to 57007, or your mail may be returned to sender.
