Campus mailboxes are available to all students who reside in university housing. Assignments are made by the Mail Services department. New students arriving in the Fall semester will be notified of their mailbox assignment by e-mail and regular US Mail the first week of August. Students who have not received a mailbox assignment by the end of the second week of August should contact Mail Services by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use the following format for all mail and packages sent to you at Tulane University
The last 3 lines of the address are all capitalized. NO alpha characters should appear with the four digit mailbox number, (i.e. “BOX”, “SLOT”, “MB”, “MR”, or “PO”)
Items addressed as PO BOX will be misrouted by the USPS to an alternate location in the city and will lead to delays in students receiving the item.
Tulane Mail Services can accept items from all major carriers, the mailbox is NOT a PO Box address.
Boldly marking the sides of all packages with the mailbox number will improve handling time once the item arrives at Tulane.
Mailboxes are only available to students who reside in university housing. If the student moves off campus for any reason, they will not be able to keep a campus mailbox. Please refer to the forwarding section for information on changing your address.
All student mailbox holders are issued a mailbox key.
Each school year students must check in at Mail Services to pickup their mailbox key and sign their mailbox contract.
BE VERY CAREFUL WITH YOUR KEY!!!
You must have your key in order to check your mail. Mail from the mailbox will not be handed over the counter.
If you have lost your key, you can purchase a replacement at the Mail Services service counter. The cost of replacements are $30 each. If you find your key within 5 working days you can get a full refund, by returning the replacement with your purchase receipt. (refunds will not be given without a receipt).
End of year key returns
All mailbox keys must be returned at the end of the school year (May), or if you move off campus at any time during the school year. Students will be charged an non-refundable fee of $50 to their accounts receivable if their key is not returned by the posted deadline. This fee covers the costs associated with replacing the mailbox lock for security reasons. Students who will be living on campus during the summer session will be given an exception to this provided they register with Mail Services prior to the deadline.
