Info for Parents of On-campus Students 

When sending mail (whether it be letters or packages) to a student, please include the student's box number to avoid delays.  The proper mailing address for on-campus mail is:

Student's name
Salisbury University
Campus Box xxxx
Salisbury MD 21801-6860

Please do not use PO Box!!!  The USPS branch in Salisbury has some of the same box numbers and sometimes it gets delayed there.

When using Fed EX or UPS (that say they don't deliver to PO boxes), use our street address instead:

1101 Camden Ave
Campus Box xxxx
Salisbury MD 21801-6860

The Post Office is centrally located in the Commons building.  There is no delivery to dorms. Please do not include dorm and room numbers in your address.

At the beginning of each semester, you can mail some your bigger items (carpet,fridge,etc) for your son/daughter to his/her mailbox for pickup when you arrive for check-in. We are open extended hours during check-in weekend. This could help in the packing process.

 Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8AM-5PM.  There are no weekend hours.  So if you mail your student a package late in the week, chances are he/she will receive it on Monday.  Also please don't overnight a package for your student on Friday for a Saturday delivery.  No one will be here to sign for or receive it. No need to spend the extra money when you can use 2nd day or priority mail.

When your student receives a package, it is logged in.  A notice is written up and placed in your student's mailbox.  The student then bring the notice, along with his/her student ID, to claim their package.  The student then signs the log and we retrieve his/her package.

Mail comes to SU at 8AM and 12 noon each day.  Mail is sorted and placed in mailboxes.  UPS arrives between 10-11 AM. FED EX arrives at various times each day.

If you have any questions or concerns, call us at (410) 546-6903.
