PARENTS, LOVED ONES - SENDING MAIL TO AN ON-CAMPUS STUDENT:

Sample address:

Student’s full name
Residential hall name, Rm XXXX
Street number and street address
Blacksburg, VA 24061-(+ four codes that are specific to each building)

The student’s address should not have “Virginia Tech” included. This actually slows down the delivery.

If the student’s full name is not included in the address, the mail or package will be returned to the sender.
