When you check into your residence hall, you will be assigned a mailbox. Mail sent to you should be addressed as follows:
Hall address, Room ____
Evansville, Indiana 47714
Note: Do not include “University of Evansville” in the address.
USPS delivery and pickup is made at each hall once each day Monday through Saturday. Most packages (FedEx, UPS, USPS requiring a signature, etc.) are delivered to Mail Services located in the General Services building. You will be notified via e-mail or telephone when a package arrives in Mail Services for pickup/signature. A valid UE student ID and signature are required before packages are released from Mail Services for student pickup. For security reasons, student IDs are matched to the shipping name prior to package release.
Items sent to residence hall mail offices that are too big to fit in the mailbox will remain in the residence hall mail office until picked up. A slip in your mailbox or a note on the office dry erase board indicates you have a package. USPS leaves a small brownish peach and/or green slip that indicates that your package must be picked up at the post office located on Washington Avenue.
Summer - Sending packages / mail prior to moving in
Due to storage and staffing limitations, mail and packages should not be sent any earlier than two weeks before the first day of classes. Items arriving prior to Wednesday, August 10 2016 may be returned to sender.
Please note that full service mail deliveries may not be made until the Thursday prior to the regular August opening date (on new student move-in day for the August SOAR). As normal mail delivery is not available prior to that date – check with residence life staff to retrieve priority items (medication, essential paperwork, etc.)
Students living in University housing can request that UE forward mail to a new address.
Summer address changes:
- Step 1: Log on to WebAdvisor.
- Step 2: Select "Current Students.”
- Step 3: Select "Addresses on File.” At the bottom of that screen, enter your seasonal address info. Be sure to include an end date if applicable.
Bulk mail and magazines will not be forwarded. Students must contact organizations that send bulk mail and magazines regarding their summer address. Music will be forwarded with postage due. If a forwarding address is not provided, all first class mail will be forwarded to the home address on record.
Village residents must change their address through the US post office as well. The Internet link for the USPS change of address form is: moversguide.usps.com.
Note: Mail forwarding by the University is done as a courtesy. Mail is not forwarded when the University is closed. Students not returning in the fall are strongly encouraged to contact businesses and organizations to change mailing address information. The University is not responsible for fines or penalties related to delayed mail delivery.
