Sending Mail to Your Student

The correct address format for students’ incoming mail is:

Student’s Name
Box ______, Lafayette College
111 Quad Drive
Easton, PA  18042


Students will receive an email notification when packages are available for pick up from the College Post Office.  Packages may be picked up from the lockers outside the Post Office or at the service window.  A photo ID is required to pick up packages.  Packages not claimed within 14 days will be returned to sender.


Students receiving daily newspapers (hometown, Financial Times, etc.), should collect their mail daily. On the third day, and until the box is emptied, additional newspaper editions will be recycled.


Before departing the College for the summer, all students must do one of the following:

  • Fill out a forwarding card to have your mail forwarded home; or
  • Fill out a card to have your mail placed in your mailbox.

The student mailboxes are generally inactive for the summer months. You must provide instructions on how to handle your mail by submitting one of the two cards described above. If no instructions are given, all mail will be returned to the sender.
