It is important that students give the correct address to parents, retail shippers and other senders to ensure that mail is delivered accurately and on time.
Addressing standards for student mail is determined by residence. Student residents who live in the Towers, Residence Tower, Ward, West, Newell, Richmond, Prettyman and Scarborough receive mail boxes at the University Union. Students who live in
Barton House, Douglass House, Millennium Hall, Paca House, Towson Run, or Tubman House are given a mail box in their building. The three-digit number of their building mail box should be included in the address directly following the one-digit building number as listed below. For example, a Paca resident with mail box number 2225 should be addressed to Paca House Unit #82225. Union mail box holders do not use a prefix.

Please print clearly. In order to deliver it we must be able to read it. Use standard abbreviations and no nicknames. Building name or room numbers are not necessary.
Use the Towson University campus envelopes. They are reusable, a great buy, and they are printed in the proper format to ensure prompt and correct delivery of your campus mail. You can purchase university campus envelopes from Central Stores.
