Obtaining and Closing a Campus Rental Box
Campus Mail boxes are available for rent to Faculty, Staff, Students (commuters), and anyone in the surrounding community. The total cost for mail box rental for the Fall or Spring semester is $16.00 and Summer semester is $8.00. This can be paid via check, credit/debit card, Apple Pay (or other electronic payment) or Lion's Lagniappe(with picture ID).
If you are interested in renting a Mail Box stop by the Document Source Print and Mail Center located in the Student Union, Room 1401.
Mail is accessible during The Document Source regular business hours only.
Boxes must be closed or renewed by the deadline advertised via box notices and notices posted on the university webmail login page. Failure to meet the deadline will result in box closure and a $25 fee.
Box renewals or closures must be done in person at the Document Source. Please remember to fill out a Change of Address form upon closure of your box so that mail may be forwarded to your new address.
Federal law prohibits mail from being permanently forwarded from an open box. You must close the box and complete a Change of Address form in person (signature and W# is required).
