Campus Post Office
The campus post office is located in the Hixson Union Building. Students may receive packages/mail via USPS, FedEx, UPS and DHL. We can currently return prepaid packages for the following carriers only: USPS, FedEx and UPS. The campus post office sells stamps, envelopes and padded envelopes. We provide USPS Priority boxes, envelopes and padded mailing supplies. If students want to mail out their own packages, they should have their own Click-N-Ship account through usps.com so they can print postage from their computer and drop it off at the campus post office. We accept checks and debit or credit cards.
Mail must be picked up at this location as there are no deliveries to residence halls or campus houses. You will receive an email notification from the campus post office when processed mail or packages are available for pickup. Emails from other companies stating the item has been delivered do not mean we have processed it. You will need your university ID or other photo ID to receive all mail or packages.
Mail is forwarded after graduation until Aug. 1. We are only able to forward USPS First Class and Priority mail. Parents and students may begin shipping belongings to the campus post office starting Aug. 1.
Outgoing mail will leave campus by 2:30 p.m. daily.
Student envelopes and packages should be addressed as follows:
Student Box # _____
300 W. Hawthorne Rd
Spokane, WA 99251
Frequently Asked Questions

What information should I have before inquiring about a lost package?
Please have your method of shipment, tracking number and information about how the package was addressed.
How much does it cost to mail/send packages through USPS?
The cost depends on the weight, size and ZIP code/country. We cannot give good estimates across the counter without that information. You can also get a close estimate by using the USPS website.
Can I have someone else pick up my mail?
No. (Some extenuating circumstances will be considered.)
