Mail & Packages

Jump to content below

Students residing in on-campus residence halls must obtain a P.O. Box to receive USPS mail. To obtain a P.O. Box, a student must complete an application (applications are available at the MSU Post Office) and turn it into USPS staff. See details at Two forms of identification are required to apply. Fees begin at $40, depending on the box size. Two keys are provided to each box holder. 

Please note:

  • Most online shopping is delivered by the Post Office and is dropped off by FedEx and UPS to the Post Office, so your student must have their own Post Office box.
  • The MSU Post Office will also accept packages from UPS, FedEx and DHL addressed to a student’s PO Box.  All packages are held at the Post Office until the student comes by to pick them up.

Students who have a P.O. Box should address their mail in the following manner:

Sally Student
P.O. Box ___
Mississippi State, MS 39762

Students who do not have a P.O. Box will not receive mail via USPS while living on campus.

If a student is receiving a package via DSL, Fed Ex, or UPS they should address their package in the following manner:

NOTE: Providers such as DSL, Fed Ex, or UPS do have national contracts with USPS. Often these providers will have USPS deliver these packages on their behalf. With that being said, sometimes even if a package is from DSL, Fed Ex, or USP, it will be delivered to the Post Office (USPS) and the Post Office (USPS) will then become responsible for the delivery/pick up of that package. That is why students should have a P.O. Box while living on campus.
