Mail and 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

Move-in day is when you'll bring most of your belongings. Beginning Aug. 16, we will begin accepting mail for incoming residents.
