Mailroom updates

News Undergrad Student Information

USPS mail

Since Saint Mary’s University is considered a business, students are unable to complete the change of address form with the United States Postal Service. We are advising students to reach out to their mail contacts (i.e., financial institutions, magazine subscriptions) directly to change their address on file.

Mail currently in mailboxes

The mailroom will forward personal first-class mail to your home address on file, unless you have provided a different mailing address. If you have a different mailing address, please contact the mailroom at by Friday, April 3. We will not forward magazines, junk mail, or campus mail.

For returning international students, the mailroom will create mail packages for you to retrieve from the International Center upon your return.


Starting Wednesday, April 1, Saint Mary’s will no longer accept student packages, except packages designated for those students who are currently residing at the Alverna Center. Per policy, UPS and FedEx do not forward packages. The USPS permits package forwarding on select parcels and will charge postage due upon receipt.

Any packages that cannot be forwarded will be held until students can return to campus and retrieve their personal items. Students who wish to return packages to sender or forward will need to make the appropriate arrangements and provide the mailroom with the shipping label.
