Mail and Packages
More questions? Email MailServices@barnard.edu.
SPRING 2021 -- Students will not be able to access the Campus Mail Room until after completing their required arrival quarantine period.
The Pandemic Response team will deliver regular mail to students during the Arrival Quarantine period, but packages will be held in the Mailroom until students finish their quarantine. Only packages containing textbooks and medications will be delivered to students during quarantine. Students who have items in storage should arrange for delivery once their quarantine is over or retrieve those items prior to coming to campus for move-in.
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).
The Student Mail Room will accept mail & packages starting August 17, 2020.
The Student Mail Room cannot accept mail or packages before that date.
(see below for exception for CG)
If you are a continuing student who will be living on campus (or in the city) over the summer, please complete a "Keep Mailbox Open" form at the Student Mail Room.
To find your mailbox number (and 4-digit zipcode extension) and your mailbox combination, please visit my.barnard.edu.
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 on my.barnard.edu, 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: the Res Life does not have access to the mailbox number or combination to be able to provide that information.
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.
