Mail & Packages

Refer to the A-Z index page for a list of all Student Housing building addresses. Here is the format for addressing mail and packages:

Student name from KU ID*
Building name, plus room or apartment number
Building street address
Lawrence, KS 66045

*Use the student's name as it appears on their KU ID. This is the name that Student Housing staff have access to when sorting mail. The use of nicknames may cause a delay in delivery.

Package Pickup

Package deliveries are received by Student Housing staff and kept in a secure area. Residents will receive a notification email to their KU email address and should go to the front desk of their building for pickup. After showing the desk assistant their KU ID card, residents may collect their package. Students can receive packages and mail throughout the school year.

Upon moving out of Student Housing, residents will list their mail forwarding address.

Room Changes

If a student has moved to a different room or hall, send mail to the new room assignment. Students can view their room assignments on their myKU Portal.

Before Move-In

Plan to bring most of your belongings on move-in day. However, beginning Aug. 16, we can begin to accept mail for incoming residents. Please do not order, for delivery to your hall, a number of packages until after you have moved in. There is limited secured storage space to handle large deliveries for an extended period of time.

In addition, during move-in day we restrict delivery trucks so that residents will be able to gain easier access to their halls.
