Important Information: your Barnard mailbox information

If you are thinking about shipping some of your belongings to Barnard--or if you're already dreaming of future care packages--you'll need to know your campus mailing address. Your mailing address will not be the same as your room assignment in the residence halls; the student mail services have a central location in the middle of campus in the lower level of Altschul Hall which can be accessed by walking through LL1 of the Diana Center.

To learn more about using the student mail services and receiving mail and packages at Barnard, visit the student page of the Mail Services website here. Your mailbox assignment and combination will be viewable late next week on your myBarnard page: To find this info:

  1. Log into myBarnard and click on the Student Services tab at the top.  
  2. Then, in the right-hand column under "myMail & Print," click on MailBox Combination. 

NOTE: if Mailbox Combination tab is not appearing on the righthand side, it is because your mailbox has not been assigned yet. It should appear by the end of next week.

Mail Services will be able to accept packages for new students beginning 3 days before move-in. If you wish to ship packages to yourself for move-in, please be sure that the carrier (UPS, Fed Ex, etc.) will deliver the package to Barnard in a way that adheres to this schedule. The Student Mail Room will be open for First Year Check-In on Sunday, August 27, 2017, from 8am - 2:45pm. The Mail Room will also be open for Returning Student Move-In 10am-4pm on Saturday & Sunday, September 2 & 3 (and will be closed on Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 2017).

For international students, Mail Services will begin accepting packages on August 21, 2017. The Mail Room will be open on International First Year Check-In on Friday, August 25, 2017 during their normal operating hours of 11:00 AM - 4:45 PM.
