Mail & Packages

According to the Student Handbook, in order to receive mail on campus, all students are required by postal regulations to have a post office box.  Please be aware that U.S. mail sent to you at Yale which does not include your post office box number will be subject to delay in delivery, and in some cases will be returned to the sender.  The cost of a post office box is about $90 for the year (12 month rental).

New Student Mail and Shipping Information

Incoming new students, first-years and transfers, must follow the mailing and shipping directions on the first-year site here.

More mail info for the upcoming year will be updated here, on Yale College’s new website.
