Addressing Standards

Student Mail

It is important that students give the correct address to parents, retail shippers and other senders to ensure that mail is delivered accurately and on time.

Addressing standards for student mail is determined by residence. Student residents who live in the Glen Towers, Newell, Richmond, Prettyman and Scarborough receive mail boxes at the University Union. Students who live in Barton House, Carroll House, Douglass House, Marshall House, Millennium Hall, Paca House, Towson Run, or Tubman House are given a mail box in their building. The three-digit number of their building mail box should be included in the address directly following the one-digit building number as listed below. For example, a Paca resident with mail box number 225 should be addressed to Paca House Unit #8225. Union mail box holders do not use a prefix.
