Addressing Mail and Packages for Students:
To ensure timely delivery of your mail, please use the following format:
If your full proper name (no nicknames) and residence hall name are not both included and printed clearly, delivery to the recipient will be delayed or we may not be able to identify the intended recipient and the mail may be returned to sender.
Incoming Student Mail:
Regular incoming USPS mail and packages along with intra-campus mail is delivered daily (Monday - Friday) by the SUNY Mailroom to your residence hall mailroom when classes are in session. Mail is delivered to the residence hall by 3 p.m. then it is sorted into assigned mailboxes by Residence Hall staff. Please check with your cage to see what time mail will be sorted by, it varies by residence hall. A residence hall “Mail Box #” will be assigned to you upon arrival on campus.
Update your local and permanent address:
Both on and off-campus students must keep their local and permanent mailing addresses updated with the Registrar’s Office. You can call them at 607-436-2531 or visit them on campus at 130 Netzer Administration Building.
Many important forms and notices will be mailed to your local address (e.g., forms from Financial Aid, Student Account notices, notes from instructors and campus information). All mail and packages must be sent to your local address, unless alternative arrangements have been made with the SUNY Mailroom during the academic year.
Forwarding of Mail:
During the summer breaks, we will attempt to forward First Class Mail to your permanent address. Only First Class Mail will be forwarded. Because forwarding significantly delays the receipt of your mail, you are strongly encouraged to have all your First, Second and Third Class mail redirected from its source to your permanent address. This is especially important for magazine subscriptions and movie subscriptions, which are mailed at bulk rates and cannot be forwarded. Mail will be held during winter break and distributed upon your return unless otherwise specified. If you move during the semester, please notify your Residence Hall Director and the Registrar’s Office.
Missing Package or Mail:
Gather as much information about the missing piece of mail or package (such as tracking number, how it was addressed, who it was from) and then contact Dragon Express to help locate your missing package. Please be sure to double check your mailbox in your Residence Hall for any missing mail.
