Mail

Mail delivered by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and through package carriers such as FedEx and UPS are delivered to students in different ways. First, determine the timeliness of your package and choose the best carrier for your needs. For example, an overnight delivery through the USPS will reach the University Mail Center overnight – but it will not necessarily make it to the student until the next business day.

Mail Basics

  • Each room on campus is assigned a mailbox located in the residence hall or apartment. Address information can be found in MyPack Portal.
  • Mail and parcels sent through USPS are delivered to University Mail Services and sorted before they are delivered to students. This means if you mail something overnight through USPS it will be delivered to Mail Services first, not directly to the residence hall.
  • Residents receive mail Monday through Friday (except during holidays and student breaks).
  • Packages delivered through UPS, FedEx or other package carriers are delivered DIRECTLY to residence hall 24-hour service desks, bypassing University Mail Services. Residents receive an email once their package is delivered to the 24-hour service desk.
  • Please address packages to the name used for NC State email.
  • E.S. King Village and Western Manor Apartments residents should use their physical street address and apartment number, regardless of mail carrier.

U.S. Postal Service Tips

  • USPS delivers mail to the NC State Campus Mail Center, where it is sorted and then distributed throughout campus.
  • USPS delivers mail directly to Wolf Village, Wolf Ridge, E.S. King Village and Western Manor Apartments.
  • USPS outgoing mail boxes are located near Poe Hall and Atrium Food Court.
  • On-campus apartments allow outgoing mail to be dropped at the 24-hour service desk locations.
  • Stamps are available for sale at 24-hour desk lobbies and at Wolfpack Outfitters.
  • Do not use the terms “Campus Box,” “PO Box,” “Box,” etc. in campus mail addresses. Doing so will cause a delay in receiving mail.
