Shipping Information

Mail: 

Mail to students should always be addressed to the following:

[STUDENT’S NAME]
PO BOX [STUDENT’S PO BOX NUMBER]
NEW HAVEN CT 06520-[LAST 4 DIGITS OF PO BOX NUMBER]

To ensure that US Mail can be addressed and delivered to students living on-campus, Yale’s existing policy requiring students to establish a PO Box and mailing address at Yale Station remains in effect.  The temporary practice of Campus Mail delivering student US Mail to each residential college office will be discontinued.  Starting October 1, 2019, misaddressed US Mail will be returned to sender.  Exceptions will be made for voting ballots, passports, and jury duty notices, which on-campus students without PO Boxes can address to themselves at their residential college office address, for delivery by Campus Mail.

Regarding financial documents, students are advised to establish and use available online methods whenever possible to receive checks, bank statements and other financial documents that might otherwise be mailed.  Students expecting to receive other important US Mail are advised to establish a Yale Station PO Box and mailing address. 

Packages: 

During the academic year, UPS, FedEx, and DHL packages arrive to 250 Church Street (203-432-3766), and students will normally receive an e-mail when their package arrives.  If you address a package to 74 High Street for a student, it will still go to 250 Church Street, but may result in delays.

Students will be required at all times to show ID to receive their packages.

Packages should be addressed as follows:

(Student’s Name)
Yale University
(Your Residential College Name)
250 Church Street
New Haven, CT 06510

All undergraduate students without PO Boxes can still receive any package from any vendor [Amazon included] and any carrier [ UPS, FEDEX, DHL] at the package receiving center during the academic year. The center closes the day after Commencement and reopens around August 15th.  

To facilitate delivery of the growing number of Amazon packages for students, Yale is partnering with Amazon to install Amazon package delivery lockers on campus.  These new Amazon locker banks will be installed at key locations around Yale’s campus this fall.  Specific locations and timing will be announced in a future communication.
