HOW DO I GET A PO BOX? Mailboxes are usually assigned right before the Fall semester in August. The post office manager will then notify each student through HSU email with his/her box assignment and combination for access.
WHAT IF I DIDN'T GET A NOTIFICATION OR BOX ASSIGNMENT? Look for a message from Kathy Williams with the subject HSU MAILBOX ASSIGNMENT. Check your Junk email folder. If you haven't received an assignment, contact Mrs. Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Campus mail is mail sent from any enrolled HSU student, alumni, faculty, or staff member addressed to an HSU student, faculty/staff member, organization, or department that holds a campus mailbox.
Mail is posted daily, generally before 11 a.m.
On Saturday, though window services are not available, letter mail is posted usually after 3pm, pending USPS delivery.
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.
If you need to change your mailbox placement for any reason, please see the post office manager.
IMPORTANT: Do not send cash through USPS or campus mail. Our employees will not be held responsible for lost cash in the mail.
