All mail generated by the College, along with all mail delivered to the College by the United States Postal Service or express delivery services, will be distributed through the Student Mailroom. The mailroom supports over 4000 mailboxes for qualified students and student organizations. Throughout the year, you will have access to your mailbox during the operational hours of the Student Union.

Mailbox Requirements

A student is required to have a mailbox in the Student Mailroom if they meet one of the following conditions:

  1. Residency - student lives on campus
  2. Undergraduates - student is registered for 9 or more credit hours
  3. Requests – made by a registered student (Every effort will be made to meet this request, however, mailbox issuance will be based solely on box availability.)

Mailing Address

Prior to your entry semester, the Student Mailroom will assign all qualified students a campus mailbox. This will then create your official SUNY Potsdam mailing address.

Example     

College mailing address
Sarah Smith
SUNY Potsdam
[Student Mailbox Number]  Barrington Drive
Potsdam, New York 13676

Upon the completion of your course registration, you will be assigned a campus mailbox. In August, the Student Mailroom will release your specific mailbox assignment to you. You will receive an e-mail notification, sent to your SUNY Potsdam e-mail address, that will share the specific address details.

Your mailing address will remain the same for the duration of your study at SUNY Potsdam. This mailing address will be used by others (both on campus and off campus) to contact you. When you receive your mailing address, be sure to share it with your family, friends and any company, group or agency whom you anticipate receiving mail or packages.

Mailbox Activation

When you arrive on campus, you will need to go to the Student Mailroom located on the first floor of the Student Union to sign out your mailbox key. Please note the mailroom service hours below to complete this process.

Your mailbox should be checked regularly to ensure that you receive any important correspondence from the College in a timely manner.
