Incoming Mail

The correct address format for incoming student mail is:

Students will receive an e-mail notification when packages are received at the College Post Office. Packages will be available through the lockers located outside the Post Office or at the service window. Please review the email notification for pick up instructions.

Please bring photo ID to retrieve packages from the service window.

Packages must be claimed as soon as possible and will be returned to sender after 14 days.


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.


First Class Mail and Packages:  All items must be claimed before you leave campus for the summer. If unclaimed by the last day of exams, all items will be returned to the sender.

All students must provide instructions for their preference on handling personal first-class mail and packages over the summer by completing, signing, and forwarding PS Form 3575 to the College Post Office:

  • To have your mail forwarded, provide the forwarding address in Section 8; or
  • To continue to have your mail placed in your College mailbox, write the word ‘HOLD’ in Section 8.

Inter-Campus Mail

No items smaller than a postcard will be accepted. Single letter sized items must be tri-folded and half-sheet items must be folded in half.

Outgoing Mail:
