Mail and Package


Each student is assigned a mailbox when she checks into housing. The mailboxes are located in the following areas:

Brookdale Residence Hall – hallway in basement
Schottenstein Residence Hall – entryway to back lounge
35th Street Residence Hall – in the back of the Fitness Center in the basement
36th Street Residence Hall – in the lobby, next to the Security desk

All mail must be addressed to the student using her legal name, not her preferred name or a parent's name. Mail is only accepted for students currently residing in University Housing. 

Each residence hall has its own address, and you should use only these addresses:

Mailbox keys are provided for students living in Brookdale, Schottenstein and 35th Street Residence Halls.  If a student loses her mailbox key, please follow these procedures .  36th Street residents are provided mailbox combinations.  If one misplaces her combination or has difficulty opening or locking her mailbox, please contact the Office of University Housing and Residence Life.

To safeguard mail, we encourage students to make sure their mailbox doors are closed at all times. Please return misdirected mail to the Office of University Housing and Residence Life; do not leave it near the mailboxes.

Local vans are available in the evenings to assist students with transporting their packages if necessary. Please see the Security desk in the lobby of Brookdale Residence Hall for the schedule.
