Student Mail

Student mail is processed and made ready for student pick up at the Owens Hall mail room.


Receiving and sending USPS letter mail for on-campus students

Sample Address:

Student’s full name
Residential Hall name, Rm XXXX
Street number and street address
Blacksburg, VA 24061- Zip+4

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

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

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. Your Hokie Passport is required for all transactions. Mail can be picked up at Owens Hall Room 23, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Mail is delivered to Owens Hall Monday - Friday. Please bring Hokie Passport with you when retrieving mail.

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.”
