All mail sent to students living in all residence halls should be addressed in the following manner:

SMC #____________
PITTSBURGH PA 15219-2115

Mail should be addressed in this manner because the U.S. Postal Service sorts mail on automated equipment which utilizes the street and Zip+4 Code. This separates the student mail from the campus mail, which uses 15282 as its zip code.

 The Student Mail Center does not accept COD Packages. You can purchase stamps, and mail packages at the Des Places location

All student mail is forwarded for 90 days following their departure from campus. It is the students responsibility to log on to the Dori homepage and in the Mail Channel, submit a forwarding address. Mail that is received for which we have no forwarding address will be returned to sender. Mailing Servies forwards all First Class and Periodical mail. UPS and FedEx packages cannot be forwarded. These packages will be marked " Refused" and returned to sender.
