1600 Campus Court  

Please do not use 1600 Campus Court in your address. This address is simply the legal location of ACU. In fact, this address is really between the WACU museum (1602 Campus Court) and East North 16th Street, ACU is really on the odd side of the block. Using this street address on your incoming mail will delay it as it is sorted to the wrong postal carrier route or it could be returned to the sender as a non-existent address.

1201 East Ambler Avenue

Please do not use 1201 East Ambler Avenue in your address. This address is for the location of Physical Resources and University Purchasing only. Using this street address on your incoming mail will delay it as it is sorted to the wrong postal carrier route or it could be returned to the sender as a non-existent address.

911 Street Addresses

Please do not use your building's 911 street address, the address on the entrance doors, as a mailing or shipping address. These addresses do not exist as far as any of the small package carriers or the Postal Service is concerned. Mail or shipments addressed to these addresses will more than likely be returned to the sender.
