Residence Community Address Formats for Mail and Packages

Page address: https://www.mnsu.edu/reslife/housing/policies/services/mailandpackages.html

How Do Residents Get Their Mail?

Each room in Crawford, McElroy, Preska, and Julia Sears has an assigned mailbox located in the front lobby of the residence community.  Room owners share this mailbox.  Residents in each Stadium Heights apartment share a mailbox located near the entrance to their building.  Room keys open mailboxes in McElroy, Preska, and Julia Sears, and a separate mailbox key for each resident opens Stadium Heights mailboxes.  Crawford residents are given a combination to open their mailbox.

We do not allow the following items to be placed in student mailboxes:

  • Unaddressed advertising of any nature
  • Items which are not personally addressed

Brochures, flyers, etc. that are wished to be delivered to students through mailboxes must follow USPS guidelines.


What Address Should I Use to Send Mail or Packages?

Please make sure that all mail is addressed to the name of the student or it is returned to sender.  The student's name on a piece of mail is the most important piece of information!  Be careful when purchasing items online for your student to make sure that the student's name appears in the "ship to" address. Please use the format of the address below to send mail to residents. Incoming students will be able to view their address when they receive their room assignment over the summer.


What Should I Do if I'm Missing Mail or Mail Arrives Damaged?

If you are missing USPS mail or your USPS mail has arrived damaged, please visit "Consumer Help" at https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/ to report your problem.


Packages

Package delivery notifications are placed in resident mailboxes when packages arrive. Residents obtain packages by taking their package notification slip and photo ID to their Front Desk.

When a package arrives, a package box key or package delivery notification is placed in the resident's mailbox. Residents may obtain packages by using the package key or contacting the Property Owner's Office at 507-388-5167.


Mail Forwarding

Residents are responsible for notifying businesses, individuals, and the University of their new address when moving from one location to another.

Residents of Crawford, McElroy, Julia Sears, and Preska:
Mail and packages are not forwarded during break periods. Residents expecting mail during break periods should notify senders in advance of their temporary break address.

Mail received for a former resident is forwarded to the resident's permanent address, as listed with the University. Permanent addresses can be viewed/changed on E-services.

  • Periodicals are forwarded for 60 days.
  • Priority and first-class mail is forwarded for 365 days.

Residents of Stadium Heights:
Mail and packages are delivered by the United States Postal Service. Forwarding address cards are available at any postal office or online. Mail is forwarded by the U.S. Postal Service to the address the resident has provided to the U.S. Postal Service. Mail is not retained or forwarded by the Department of Residential Life.
