After the Phillips Hall Post Office closes Friday, 8/15 at 4:30, all remaining summer hold mail that has not been picked up will be taken to the Mail Center for processing.

Students who have an on campus address will have their mail processed with the new address to be sorted into their mailbox opening weekend. You may pick up your mail at the Mail Center until then.

Students who have a current local off campus address will have their mail forwarded to their new local address.

Students not living on campus that have not notified the Registrar of their new local off campus address will have their mail forwarded to the permanent address on file.

Remember that when you move off campus that is where your mail and packages must be shipped to.
