New Way to Receive Packages: Virginia Tech Package PickUPP

Intelligent Package Locker at Virginia Tech

For the latest COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Information:


Students will retrieve all USPS mail (letters, envelopes, magazines, etc.)  at Owens Hall Room 23.

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. - 7 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.

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 12 p.m. for same day shipping, otherwise it will ship the following day Monday through Friday.

Helpful tips:

  • To update your mailing address, log into HokieSpa and then click “Personal Information.” 
  • Update your Amazon account to ship to your current address.
  • Double-check the shipping on any orders you may have at your current address and ensure they are updated to your current address for fall 2021.

Updates – Package and Mail Deliveries

Due to national and regional backlogs of USPS mail, departments may experience delays in receiving mail on campus.

Mail Services will process and deliver mail and packages as quickly and efficently as possible when it arrives and thanks the Blacksburg campus community for their patience.

Departmental mail questions may be directed to or 540-231-6909.
