Student Information

Students at the College of Charleston are provided the convenience of a post office right here on campus! The Office of Mail Services can offer you any service provided by the United States Postal Office and private couriers. 

Student Mail / Packages

Every student living on the College of Charleston campus gets their own CofC mailing address! Students will receive their CofC Complex number via email a couple of weeks before move-in. To send mail to a student living on campus, please use the Campus Mailing Address.

Returning students keep the same mailing address each year while living on campus.

Package Notification
Students will be notified by Mail Services via email for all packages and deliveries to their address. An email will be sent to the student’s CofC email as soon as the item(s) is ready for pickup.

Weight/Size Restrictions for Incoming Packages
Packages that are over the USPS limit (70 lbs, 108” in combined length, width and height) will be refused and returned to the sender.

Mail Incident / Theft
If you believe your mail has been lost, stolen or compromised in any way, please submit a Mail Incident Report electronically to the Office of Mail Services.

Mail Forwarding

Mail Services provides students with convenient mail forwarding over the summer. Mail will automatically be forwarded to the permanent address on file with the College of Charleston. If you wish for your mail to be forwarded to a temporary address, please complete our mail-forwarding form.

Mail forwarding is also provided for students who graduate or move off campus for a period of 90 days after they leave campus. Students are strongly encouraged to update all of their records and addresses to ensure the fastest mail delivery. Fill out our mail-forwarding form and indicate that you will not be living on campus next academic year.  

All USPS mail and packages will be forwarded. Packages delivered by other carriers, such as UPS, FedEx or DHL, will only be delivered to addresses in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties. All others will be returned to sender.
