Student Mail and Packages
All students at Yale are required to use their post office box for receipt of their mail and packages. Please note this excerpt taken from the Student Handbook:
Post Office Boxes
In order to receive mail on campus, all students are required by postal
regulations to have a post office box. Please be aware that U.S. mail sent to
you at Yale which does not include your post office box number will be subject
to delay in delivery, and in some cases will be returned to the sender.
Mail and packages received with a street address (including those sent to your
Head of College’s Office) must be looked up to determine the correct box number, then
returned to Yale Station. This causes a delay of 24 to 48 hours in the receipt
of your mail. To avoid this delay, use your box number on all mail. Do not use
the words Yale University, a street address, room number or the college or the
dorm name or address.
For items ordered online from a vendor that refuses a box number, leave off the “PO” and only use “Box _ _ _ _ _ _” . Don’t forget to use the complete zip. Orders should be received without delay and any follow-up materials (invoices, catalogs, etc.) will also go right to your box.
The correct format for your Yale address is:
PO Box _ _ _ _ _ _
New Haven, CT 06520- _ _ _ _
Remember: ALL USPS PACKAGES AND MAIL MUST BE ADDRESSED TO YOUR PO BOX, NOT TO A STREET ADDRESS OR YOUR HEAD OF COLLEGE’S OFFICE. ALL packages that can be sent through US mail can be sent to your post office box, not just packages that actually fit in your box. Visit Yale Station daily to pick up your mail!
Consult your local delivery service office for information about the timing of your shipment and proper me of packaging. It is best to send all of your packages at the same time for shipment integrity and efficient delivery. Do not ship before Friday, August 10. Address all UPS, DHL, and Fed Ex packages following the sample below:
250 Church Street
New Haven, CT 06510
Incoming new students, first-year students and transfers, must follow the mailing and shipping directions within the First-Year Student Handbook.
