Post Office

The Campus Post Office is located on the lower level of Mather Hall. The Office provides the community with efficient processing and distribution of its regular and campus mail and packages along with selling stamps and shipping packages. The Post Office is responsible for maintaining the college’s postal permit and metered mail with the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Proper Address

Incoming and campus mail must be properly addressed as outlined below to ensure a timely delivery:

  • Incoming mail
    Recipient Full Name
    Trinity College
    Box #70 – (DO NOT use P.O. Box)
    300 Summit Street
    Hartford, CT 06106-3100
  • Inter-campus mail
    Recipient Full Name
    Box 70 – (DO NOT use P.O. Box)

All campus mail should be addressed to the individual and his or her department.

  • The student box number is as vital to the address as the student’s full name. Lack of a box number (#70 –) will mean that delivery of your mail will be delayed. If there is an error in the addressing mail (such as the use of nicknames or first names only), the mail will be undeliverable and returned to sender.
  • Crescent Street is not an address that may be used for deliveries. Students living in the Crescent Street townhouses must still use assigned campus box number and pick up parcels at the Post Office.

Student Boxes

Student box numbers are assigned to all incoming students by the Post Office and will remain the same during the duration of the students’ association with Trinity.  For security and confidentiality purposes, the assigned box combination should not be shared with anyone.

Due to lack of storage we recommend send packages no more than two weeks before the start of a semester.

Students should pick up mail daily. Mail letters left in boxes longer than 10 days will be subject to a student status check at the Registrar’s Office. The mail will be banded together and placed above the box. At the end of ten more days (20 days total), the mail will be returned to sender.

To ensure a safe and prompt delivery to Trinity, please request all exceptionally important mail, such as credit cards, checks, or transportation tickets (plane, train, airplane), it is suggested the items should be sent to you by certified or special tracking service mail. Do not send cash in the mail.

Parcels and Packages

Packages arriving on campus are held at the Post Office. When packages arrive there could be two day delay especially in the beginning of each semester. If you need to get something quickly, suggest shipping overnight mail (any service) as those packages get sorted more quickly.

Students receive an email notification once packages are processed. Students receive a second email notification for unclaimed packages after two days. Packages must be picked up 10 days after the second notice, failure to do so will result in packages being returned to the sender. Students must have their Trinity College ID, when picking up a package at Post Office, without a Trinity ID, the package will not be relinquished. Do not ask the student employees to pick up package(s) without a Trinity ID. This is a breach of security and would jeopardize the student’s job. If the Post Office is unable to identify the receiver of a package, it will be returned to the sender after five consecutive business days.

Note: Amazon has lockers (Hub Locker – Pulley, 300 Summit St.) accessible 24 hours a day on campus. The lockers are located to the left of the Tozer Gates (Mather circle) facing the gates against Mather Hall.

During winter and spring breaks, mail will not be forwarded, but will be held in your campus box. If you are away from Trinity for study away programs, prolonged illness, or any other reasons, it is your responsibility to inform us in writing where to forward your mail during your absence.
