Wrong Mail?

If you get mail for someone else delivered to your mail box place it in the Misdelivered/Missent mail slot (located next to the Outgoing Mail Slot). DO NOT throw misdelivered mail away; it may be important to someone, and tampering with mail that does not belong to you is a Federal offense punishable by law.

If you have an address change, fill out the Change of Address form

Send Mail to a Student

If you are trying to send mail to a Residence Hall Student, place your name and return address in the top left corner of the envelope.  In the center of the envelope, provide the following:

Student name (e.g., Norm Niner)
Room number and residence hall (e.g., 49 Martin Hall)
UNC Charlotte street address (e.g., 9201 University City Blvd.)
UNC Charlotte city, state and zip code (e.g., Charlotte, NC 28223)

Here's an image of how to address the envelope.

Mail & Package Services provides residence hall box delivery service as a convenience to students as well as departmental deliveries.

Postage Saving Tips

  • For mailings with more than 5 pages, fold in half and place in a 6˝x 9˝ envelope and save an average of 41 cents. (Do not use an envelope with a clasp; there is an extra non-machinable USPS service fee.)
  • Screen your mailing list for unnecessary names, duplicates and incomplete addresses.
  • Do not over-insure. USPS will pay only the actual value of an item, not the declared value.
  • Use postcards for short messages or announcements. The cost is less than the letter rate.
  • Double side your inserts to keep the weight down on your mail piece.
  • Combine mailings when possible into a larger envelope for distribution at the same location.
  • Use Business Reply envelopes provided by vendors, instead of department envelopes.
  • FAX the information when time is crucial, instead of using Express mail.
  • If you use Priority mail, use the envelopes and boxes provided by the USPS. These supplies are free and can be ordered on-line at
  • Request Media Mail rate when mailing printed materials. Savings can be as much as 50% of the cost of 1st class mail.
  • Call UNC Charlotte Mail & Package Services, 704-687-0383 where experienced professionals can advise you on the best ways to save postage cost.
