  • Campus Box
                Your box will be assigned upon checking in at the Post Office. Procedures will be explained at arrival.

                The accuracy of the address affects the speed and handling of your mail. Follow the tips below to insure proper delivery.
                Print the delivery and return address on the same side of your envelope or card. The address should be written parallel
                to the longest line. Remember that all the things below are required for proper delivery.
  • Return Address
                 Print or type your address in the upper left corner on the front of the enevelope. A return address is required on most 
                 mail. Use Campus Box #. Do not use P.O.#. When typing, use all CAPS and BOLD lettering. The only punctuation is 
                the hyphen in the Zip Code. (30501-3628)

                 Place labels for extra services above the delivery address and to the right of the return address, or to  the left of the

                 online at
  • Recipient/Organization Name
                  Print clearly with a pen or permanent marker so the address is legible from an arm's length away.
                  Do not use commas or periods.
  • Street Address
                  Use a post office box or street address, but not both. If the address also has a directional (NW=Northwest), be sure
                  sure to use it. There may be more than one Main Street. 

                  Note: The correct Apartment or Suite number will help to ensure delivery to the right location.
  • City, State and Zip Code
                  To find the correct spelling of a city or to find a zip code, visit or call 1-800-ASK-USPS. You can also
