When students enroll at Barnard, they are assigned a mail box in the Student Mail Room in Altschul Hall. Students will keep this mailbox for their entire four years at Barnard (so you don't have to change your mailing address each year).
Mail and/or packages addressed to residence hall rooms will not be accepted (see exception for Cathedral Gardens below).
Please note that the Student Mail Room cannot accept packages more than 3 days before the move-in date each academic year. For example, First Year students for the 2013-2014 academic year can start having packages arrive on Thursday, August 22, 2013. If you wish to ship packages to yourself for move-in, please ask the carrier (ex. UPS, Fed Ex, etc.) to hold the package for deliver on 8/22 or later.
If you have questions regarding mail services, please contact 212-854-2095 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To find your mailbox number (and 4-digit zipcode extension) and your mailbox combination, please visit eBear and click Students > Mail Services. For more information (including Mail Room hours), please visit barnard.edu/mail-print-services/mail.
All student mail (including letters, periodicals, and packages) should be addressed as follows:
New York, NY 10027-XXXX
Note: ???? represents your 4-digit mailbox number; 10027-XXXX represents a zip+4 digit number assigned for your mailbox. Both pieces of information are available on eBear (see above).
