Mail and Packages
When students enroll at Barnard, they are assigned a mail box in the Student Mail Room in Altschul Hall. Students will keep this mailbox for their entire four years at Barnard (so you don't have to change your mailing address each year).
To find your mailbox number (and 4-digit zipcode extension) and your mailbox combination, please visit https://portal.barnard.edu/how-do-i/manage-my-campus-mailbox.
For more information (including Mail Room hours), please visit Mail Services.
All student mail (including letters, periodicals, and packages) should be addressed as follows:
New York, NY 10027-XXXX
Note: ???? represents your 4-digit mailbox number; 10027-XXXX represents a zip+4 digit number assigned for your mailbox. Both pieces of information are available on my.barnard.edu.
New Students: If your mailbox number & combination is not visible online, it has not yet been uploaded by Mail Services. The information should be posted shortly before the start of the semester. If you have questions, please visit Mail Services.
Note: Res Life does not have access to the mailbox number or combination to be able to provide that information.
The Student Mail Room will accept mail & packages for students up to 3 days before their scheduled move-in date.
If you're sending packages before moving in, please ask the shipper to hold delivery until that time.
If you are a continuing student who will be living on campus (or in the city) over the summer, please contact Mail Services (email@example.com) to request to keep your mailbox open to receive mail/packages over the summer.
No. Mail and/or packages addressed to residence hall rooms will not be accepted (see exception below for packages only at Cathedral Gardens).
Residents of Cathedral Gardens only may receive packages at their building (but not regular mail, which should be addressed to their Altschul Mail Box). The address format is:
217 Manhattan Avenue
Suite/Room Number (ex. Apartment 3D6)
New York, NY 10025
Note: packages may not arrive to CG prior to August 30 (and students are encouraged not to have packages arrive more than 1 day before their selected Move-In Time Slot). Students can ask USP or FedEx to delay the delivery of their package to the specific date.
Delivery of alcohol to individual students (regardless of age) or student groups at Barnard is prohibited.
This includes, but is not limited to, the commercial delivery of alcohol to College residence halls or the delivery of alcohol to any student campus mail address.
