Each resident is assigned a mailbox within his/her residence hall.

MU Mail Services does not normally receive mail for students in the Residence Halls. The US Postal Services delivers directly to Marshall’s residence halls and the residence halls handle all mail and packages received.

If you are looking for mail from any other courier service (UPS, Fed EX etc.) other than the US Postal Services, you should contact Marshall’s Receiving Department at 304-696-6678.

In order to alleviate some of the delivery problems we have been experiencing with mail and packages, all mail should be sent to the following addresses listed below. If you have any questions about this change, please contact Housing and Residence Life can be reached at 304-696-6765 or MU Mail Services at 304-696-2485 between 8am – 5pm, M-F.

DO NOT USE Marshall University’s unique Zip Code 25755 (it is for University Business Mail only)

Is there a Post Office on campus?

There is no post office on campus. The nearest post office is located at:

US Post Office
1200 Veterans Memorial Blvd
Huntington, WV 25701


Packages sent through U.S. Mail that require no signature will be delivered with the daily U.S. mail. If no receipt signature is required, the mail or package may be left in the residence hall on the day it is delivered. Packages will be available for student pickup during evening office hours. Mail or packages that require a receipt signature may be delayed if the resident is not available when the delivery person attempts to deliver.


Perishables (i.e., flowers, refrigerated medications) should be sent only when prior arrangements with the residents have been made to arrange receipt.
