It is not necessary to include the college’s name, especially if there is insufficient space to include it. If an address field for the college’s name is available, it is often called Business or Company.

IC Mail Service is reserved for students living on campus in residence halls and apartments

Students who live off campus should have their mail and packages addressed for delivery to their local residence. Mail and packages received by Mail Service for off campus residents are subject to Return to Sender (eligible USPS mail may be Forwarded at Mail Service's discretion). Trackable items will be entered into our tracking system with a record detailing where that item was sent. Letter mail is normally untrackable and is not recorded.
