Room Number - Residence Hall Name
(Example - 309 Heilman)
Raleigh, NC 27607-5298
Combinations are distributed on Move-In Day. The student is responsible to remember this combination. There is a 24-hour wait to reset the mailbox combination. Students will need to come by the Post Office and add their name to the list, then bring their Camcard to pick up the new combination.
Students should take responsibility to provide proper security for campus mailboxes. Below are suggestions for safeguarding mailboxes.
- Spin the dial several times after closing the mailbox door. This will insure the combination is not preset.
- Do not preset mailbox combinations for convenience.
- Never give combinations to other people. This will compromise mailbox security.
- Do not let items accumulate in the mailbox.
- Always personally pick up packages and mail.
- If there is any suspicious activity, report it immediately to a postal employee or the campus police.
Commuter students have mail pockets near the Postal Center.
During the summer the Postal Center staff will make every effort to forward first class mail to the student’s permanent address that is on file. Second or third class mail, including magazines, newspapers, etc., will NOT be forwarded. It is recommended that students change the address with all correspondents, especially banks, credit card companies and magazine companies, to ensure delivery.
Forwarding first class mail to a different address, other than the student’s permanent address, requires a completed green change of address card which are located at the Postal Center.
Graduating students who need to change their permanent address should visit the Alumnae House.
Summer School Students
New and continuing students attending summer school and living on campus, should visit the mail room on the first day of the summer session to pick up mail box combinations.
