Post Office

The Post Office is located on the lower level of Mather Hall. Regular and campus mail is delivered daily to all student boxes and departments on campus. The regular business hours for all postal services are between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parcels can be picked up during these business hours during the week, and on Saturday between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

The Post Office also has a USPS postal sales window where the Trinity community may purchase stamps, ship parcels, and take advantage of a variety of additional mail services. The USPS window is open from 10:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students may pay for all mail transactions with cash, checks, or Bantam Bucks

Proper Address

Trinity’s Post Office accepts shipments from most carriers for Trinity students. Please ensure that all shipments are properly addressed by including:

  • Your name
  • Trinity College
  • Box 70 – (DO NOT use P.O. Box)
  • 300 Summit Street
  • Hartford, CT 06106-3100

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

  • Remember to inform correspondents to address all mail with your full name and box number (#70—). Your box number is as vital to your address as your full name. Lack of a box number 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 their box numbers 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 for the duration of the students’ association with Trinity. For your security and confidentiality, please do not reveal your box combination to anyone.

Students should pick up mail daily. Mail letters left in boxes longer than ten 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 that all exceptionally important mail, such as credit cards; plane, bus, and train tickets; and checks be sent to you by certified or special tracking service mail. Do not send cash in the mail.

Delivered mail classified as Certified, Insured, Registered, Express, Federal Express, and next day UPS is held at the Post Office and signature of the recipient is required upon delivery by the Post Office staff.

A valid Trinity I.D. is needed to pick up any item at the postal window.

  • Do not ask student employees of the Post Office to pick up your package(s) or mail if you do not have an I.D.; this is a breach of security and would jeopardize the student’s job. (USPS Federal Law.)

Parcels and Packages

Parcels and packages for students are accepted at the Post Office. Whenever a package is delivered, an e-mail is sent to your Trinity e-mail address. After two days, another e-mail is sent. Due to the high volume of packages, anything that is unclaimed after ten days will be returned to sender.

  • Students who have not received expected mail or packages should come to the window and ask for assistance.
  • Packages are processed as they are received.

Any concerns or questions regarding mail service at the Post Office can be answered by the staff at (860) 297-2560.

Special Services

Campus Box Stuffing

Intercampus box stuffing is done by the Post Office staff. Stuffing of 500 or less pieces needs 24-hour notice prior to the expected date of delivery, while mailings in excess of 500 pieces require 48-hour notice.

Mail Forwarding

During the summer, unless otherwise directed, your student mail is forwarded to your permanent home address. During winter and spring breaks, mail will not be forwarded, but will be held in your 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. Mail cannot be forwarded to an international address under any circumstances.
