Mailbox Options

We offer several different mailbox options for students. Mailboxes are assigned based on the marital or family status of the student:
 

These mailboxes are in two different sections of our mailboxes and with separate computer system programs. We are unable to have a family in the single student section and vice versa.

   Mailboxes for Single Students

We offer two sizes of mailboxes:

Small Mailboxes
Combination Lock
3½ x 4½ x 14½ inches
These mailboxes are the size of a normal post office box and will hold four or five normal magazines (or two medium newspapers) and a number of letters.
Medium Mailboxes
Combination Lock
11 x 6 x 14½ inches
These mailboxes will hold a large number of magazines or newspapers and letters. They will also hold a medium sized package or several small packages.

Within the two sizes of mailboxes, we offer two different occupancy options:

Private Occupancy You are in the mailbox by yourself. Private mailboxes are limited; 65 percent of all student mailbox occupants must share a mailbox. Although highly unlikely, we reserve the right to change private mailboxes into shared mailboxes.
Shared Occupancy You share the mailbox with one other person. Shared mailboxes are randomly assigned. Most roommates are not in the same mailbox. As a matter of fact, we recommend that you not share a mailbox with your roommate or boy or girl friend. If you want to be in a mailbox with someone in particular, both people must come together to the window or both applications must be mailed together. However, we cannot guarantee that we will have an empty shared mailbox available. Only occasionally do both mailbox occupants leave at the same time.

If you share your mailbox with someone – please leave that person's mail alone. It is against U.S. law for you to remove or tamper with your mailbox partner's mail.

 

   Mailboxes for Married Students and/or Those With   Children 

We offer the following options for students with a family:

Small Mailboxes
Combination Lock
3½ x 4½ x 14½ inches
These mailboxes are the size of a normal post office box and will hold four or five normal magazines (or two medium newspapers) and a number of letters.
Medium Mailboxes
Combination Lock
 11 x 6 x 14½ inches
These mailboxes will hold a large number of magazines or newspapers and letters. They will also hold a medium sized package or several small packages.

Each family has its own mailbox. In addition to the occupant responsible for the mailbox, our records can hold the names of up to five additional names receiving mail in the mailbox. The responsible occupant is the person whose student account is charged for the mailbox rent.

Information for family mailboxes assigned prior to April 8, 1999 is available on the Family Mailboxes page.
