    Mail

    Each student is assigned a mailbox when she checks into housing. The mailboxes are located in the following areas:

    Brookdale Residence Hall – hallway in basement
    Schottenstein Residence Hall – mailroom in basement
    35th Street Residence Hall – in the back of the Fitness Center in the basement
    36th Street Residence Hall – in the lobby, next to the Security desk

    Correctly addressed first and second class mail is sorted into student mailboxes Sunday through Thursday. All mail must be addressed to the student using her legal name, not her preferred name or a parent's name. The University Housing staff compares all mail and packages with a list of current undergraduate students in housing and only accepts items for names found on the list. 

    Each residence hall has its own address, and you should use only these addresses:

    Brookdale Residence Hall:
    (Student's Name)
    50 East 34th Street     
    Room ____
    New York, NY 10016
    Schottenstein Residence Hall:
    (Student's Name)
    119 East 29th Street
    Room ____
    New York, NY 10016 
    35th Street Residence Hall:
    (Student's Name)
    150 East 35th Street
    Room ____
    New York, NY 10016     
    36th Street Residence Hall:
    (Student's Name)
    151 East 36th Street
    Room ____
    New York, NY 10016

    Mailbox keys are provided for students living in Brookdale, Schottenstein and 35th Street Residence Halls.  If a student loses her mailbox key, please follow these procedures .  36th Street residents are provided mailbox combinations.  If one misplaces her combination or has difficulty opening or locking her mailbox, please contact the Office of University Housing and Residence Life.

    To safeguard mail, we encourage students to make sure their mailbox doors are closed at all times. Please return misdirected mail to the Office of University Housing and Residence Life; do not leave it near the mailboxes.

    Important Points to keep in Mind:
    Prepay shipping charges on all packages or they will not be accepted.
    Packages not properly addressed will not be accepted.
    The university does not carry any insurance for packages. Therefore it is advisable to insure the box at the time of shipping.
    There is a refrigerator in the Package Center for packages labeled perishable.
    Local vans are available in the evenings to assist students with transporting their packages if necessary. Please see the Security desk in the lobby of Brookdale Residence Hall for the schedule.
    The university is not liable for damage to or loss of any package/letter.  


    If a student is interested in working in the Package Center and is eligible for the work study program, email a University Housing administrator to check on availability.
