Students' Mail

All undergraduate students are assigned a campus post office box, which serves as their official local mailing address. This applies to students who reside off campus as well as those who live on campus.

Please check your boxes regularly.  Important information concerning classes, financial aid, student accounts and campus events is delivered daily.  You may even have a note from home!

If you wish to send mail to another student on campus, you do not need a stamp.  Just put the students full name, their box number ,and your return address on the envelope. Then drop it into the drop box labeled CAMPUS MAIL.
