For the Spring semester, we will begin to accept packages for all residential students beginning on Monday, January 9th, 2017. Please do not send packages ahead of that delivery date, as we cannot guarantee they will be received due to space limitations. If packages are sent to arrive ahead of the resident's check-in, all items should be claimed as soon as the resident checks in.
Each resident is assigned a mailbox in their residential college or apartment area. Mail is delivered to student boxes Monday through Saturday. If you lose your mailbox combination, or key, you should come to the reception desk with your Cane Card to receive a copy of the combination or a replacement key.
When a student receives a package, it is signed for at the reception desk and logged into our package tracking system. Once you receive an email from us notifying you that there is a package waiting for you – bring that email and your Cane Card to the reception desk to retrieve your package. Please note that there is a slight delay between the carrier's delivery notification and when we log it into our system. The reception desk cannot accept perishable packages/items, including food or grocery deliveries, this includes but is not limited to: balloons, cupcakes, meal delivery services, frozen items, flowers, etc.
The US Post Office no longer forwards any mail coming from our residential areas. If you move off campus, or are released from your Housing Contract, you must change your address with all those who send you mail.
As an added value to living on campus, we will continue to forward internally if you change rooms on campus, however you should still change your address. Due to USPS regulations, you will not be able to use their Change of Address form to update your mailing address, you will need to contact all those who send you mail with your new or updated address. The forwarding address we collect when you check out of your room is used for internal purposes to remain in contact with you – it is no longer used to forward mail after moving off campus.
The University of Miami also has an on-campus US Post Office that provides members of the University community with all postal services. The Post Office is location on the ground floor of the Whitten University Center, across from the library. Their telephone number is (305) 284-5255.
The proper mailing address for students living on campus is as follows, please make sure to include all the information listed below, if information is missing that will cause a delay in delivery.
