Students are provided with a mailbox in the Thomas Commons. All mail should be addressed in the following format:

[Your Name]
810 Commons Circle SW #[Your Box Number]
Mount Vernon, IA 52314-1000

Please note that this is not a post office box and should not include "PO."  Including "PO" in front of the box number can delay delivery of mail. Also, students or families may have access to a residence hall's physical street address. That street address is to help guests and emergency responders find the building. In addition, some renters insurance policies require the physical street address. Mail should never be addressed to a residence hall's street address (any mail that is addressed to a residence hall's street address will likely never reach the student).

Students are responsible for transporting their mail/packages to their residence hall room.

At the start of the year, it is important for students to ensure that any items being mailed to campus arrive after the student has checked in.

For questions about mail service, please contact the Mail & Service Center.
