Page 19 of 107 Updated 1.25.17 Mail Post Office Boxes 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. Mailbox fees, where applicable, are charged to the student’s account. Campus Post Office Services The campus post office provides many services of the US Postal Service including purchase of stamps and money orders, Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express services, Certified and Insured Mail services and mailing of packages. UPS package and UPS overnight mailing services are also available. Currently the campus post office cannot accept payment for FedEx services, however it does serve as a collection point (mailing point) for all packages bearing prepaid labels regardless of the carrier. Payment by cash or check can be made for all window services but because the office is a federal post office, Cowboy Cash cannot be accepted as payment. Mailbox assignments Each fall, before Stampede, all students assigned to a residence hall will be issued a mailbox at the campus post office. These box assignments are emailed to students via their HSU email account, accessible through HSU Central. For privacy purposes, these combinations cannot be given over the counter. All other times through the year, assignments can be made by the post office manager by calling 325-670-1321 or through email correspondence (kwilli@hsutx.edu) . Campus Mail 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. Campus mail guidelines: • Must be at least 3-1/2 x 5 inches in size and should be placed in the “Campus Mail” slot at the Post Office • Non-perishable items only • No postage is necessary • Absolutely no business advertisement allowed • Important: Do not send cash through the mail! Mailroom employees will not be held responsible for cash sent through federal or campus mail.

HSU Post Office Regulations Students are welcome to have a campus mailbox as long as they are enrolled at HSU. However, if a box needs to be closed for any reason, a change of address must be submitted to the HSU Post Office to have mail forwarded. A notification must also be sent to the Business Office in order to have the box fee dropped.
