P.O. Box Information
How does a student get a Post Office Box?
Students should complete a fee sheet at the Business Office, usually done at the time of enrollment, and then present the billed receipt to the HSU Post Office for a box assignment. The rental fee is $15.00 per semester and is billed to your account.
Post office boxes are located in the Moody Center and are available to all registered and pre-registered students. All students living in a residence hall are required to have a campus mailbox.

What are the HSU Post Office Regulations?
FYI: Information from the Student Handbook, pg 34
You are welcome to have a campus mailbox as long as you are enrolled at HSU. However, if you need to close your box for any reason, you must submit a change of address to the HSU Post Office to get your mail forwarded as well as notify the Business Office to drop the fee.
The HSU Post Office receives all mail and packages from all couriers. Nothing is delivered to the residence halls. For this reason, all mail should be addressed to include your HSU box number. Should you receive a package, a notice will be placed in your box.
Mail from a student's box cannot be released to someone else unless the occupant has signed a statement requesting such release.
Students cannot share mailboxes, with the exception of married couples and members of the same family.
We are able to take only cash or check for postal services. Driver's license number is needed on all checks.
