PickUPP Locations

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 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 drop off at Owens Hall 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.
