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).
The Student Mail Room will accept mail & packages start 3 days before a student's move-in date each academic year.
The Student Mail Room cannot accept mail or packages before those dates.
If you wish to ship packages to yourself for move-in, please ask the carrier (ex. UPS, Fed Ex, etc.) to hold the package for delivery no earlier than 3 days before your move-in date.
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.
No. Mail and/or packages addressed to residence hall rooms will not be accepted (see exception below for packages only at Cathedral Gardens).
Only residents of Cathedral Gardens 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
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.
