Campus Post Office

Our Campus Post Office, located in Knobloch Campus Center, serves our students, faculty and staff with a variety of mailing and shipping services.

Hours of Operation

The Post Office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., year round.

Student Mailing Address

When mailing letters, magazine subscriptions, and shipping packages using United States Postal Service, address them as follows:

Student's Name

Box XXXX (insert student's box number for X's)

Davidson, NC 28035-xxxx (insert student's box number for X's)

please note: no street address

Federal Express and UPS shipments require a street address, so when sending an item using either of these shippers, address it as follows:

Student's Name (XXXX) (insert student's box number for X's)

209 Ridge Road

Davidson, NC 28035-XXXX (insert student's box number for X's)

When shopping online, it can be difficult to know what service the shipper is using. When ordering items online and you cannot determine what shipping method is being used, address it as follows:

Student's Name (XXXX) (insert student's box number for X's)

209 Ridge Road

Davidson, NC 28035-XXXX (insert student's box number for X's)

We are excited to announce the addition of more Amazon Lockers to the Knobloch Student Union next to our campus post office window. When ordering from Amazon use the deicated lockers by linking your orders to www.amazon.com/addluis. These lockers are accessible seven days a week.
