Four things to consider when it comes to package deliveries:

Pick up package promptly:

Retrieving your packages quickly upon receiving the "package is ready" email plays and important part in reducing the overall package backlog.

Medications:

Please consider having your medications filled at Schiffert Health Center or a local pharmacy. Many local pharmicies also deliver to campus.

Care Packages:

Hokie loved ones should consider using a local provider to deliver cakes, cookies, or other special treats. 

Toiletries, School Supplies:

Consider shopping local in Blacksburg for these items. Many local stores offer grocery, toiletry, and food delivery services.

MORE INFORMATION

USPS mail (letters, envelopes, magazines, etc.) will continue to flow to Owens Hall for pickup. 

Students will receive an email when their mail is ready to be picked up. Mail can be picked up in Owens Hall Room 23, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Mail is delivered to Owens Monday - Friday. Please bring a photo I.D. with you when retrieving mail.

Sample Address:

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

PDF of residential addresses to print

For students needing to mail a stamped envelope or prepaid package, stamped and prepaid items can be dropped off at Owens Hall Room 23  by 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The university maintains several different addresses for residence hall students: local, permanent, and guardian. These addresses come from the admissions application. Student Affairs updates and maintains the local (residence hall) address for residence hall students. It is the responsibility of each residence hall student to update and/or change his or her address (except for residence hall addresses) through Hokie SPA as soon as possible after the new address is available.

Housing and Residence Life returns the local address to the permanent address at the end of spring semester or when a residence hall student moves off campus during the academic year. Residence hall students who move off campus after their freshman year must change their address through Hokie SPA; otherwise, the permanent address will be considered the local address for all university mailings.
