Campus Post Office

The campus post office is located in the Hixon Union Building. Students may receive packages/mail via USPS, FEDEX, UPS and DHL. The post office can send any package under 15 lbs via USPS. We can currently return prepaid packages for the following carriers only: UPS, FedEx and USPS. The campus post office provides these mail services: certified with return receipt, delivery confirmation, insured, priority, first class, parcel package services and stamp sales. We accept cash, check and debit cards.

Mail must be picked up at this location as there are no deliveries to residence halls or apartments. You will receive an email notification from the campus post office when processed mail or packages are available for pick up. Emails from other companies stating the item has been delivered do not mean we have processed it. You will need your university ID to receive all mail or packages.

All incoming students who live on campus are given a student mailbox and a key. Students will receive an email from the campus post office with their mailing information, including their student box number, when a mailbox has been assigned. This email will also include instructions and the terms of use for the mailbox and key. Students can come to the front counter during normal business hours to sign for this key and agree to the terms of use.

All mail is forwarded after graduation until August 1. Parents and students may begin shipping belongings to the campus post office starting August 1.

Outgoing mail will leave campus by 2:30 p.m. daily.

Student envelopes and packages should be addressed as follows:

Student Name
Student Box # _____
300 W. Hawthorne Rd
Spokane, WA 99251

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I automatically given a student mail box when I arrive on campus?

All incoming students who live on campus are given a student mailbox and an assigned key. You will receive an email from the campus post office with your mailing information, including your student box number, when your mailbox has been assigned. This email will also include instructions and the terms of use for the mailbox and key.

When do I close my box and return my key?

Students will only turn in their student mail box key for the following situations:

  • Graduating - the key is due the Friday before graduation.
  • Transferring off campus – key return date will be emailed to you by the campus post office.
  • Withdrawal/Hiatus – key return date will be emailed to you by the campus post office.
  • Opting to close box - Please notify the campus post office that you wish to close your box, and check to make sure you have an updated forwarding address on file.

If you lose your key before graduation or other qualifying situation, you can request a copy for $15.00. If you fail to turn in your key, you will be fined $25.00 to your student account.

All keys returned in May 2019 will result in the box being closed.

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 pickup my mail?

No. (Some extenuating circumstances will be considered.)

What time are mail and packages available for pick up?

You will receive an email notification from the campus post office when packages are available for pick up. Letters and paper mail will be available in your mailbox. If you cannot make it to the campus post office during normal business hours, please call before we close to discuss other options.
