The University of Alabama offers a mail and package center for all students. The University of Alabama Mail Center is located on the first floor of the The University of Alabama Student Center, across from the University Supply Store (SUPe Store) and next door to Starbucks. The Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (except during University closings and holidays).


Students may receive first-class letter mail without renting a mailbox.

Please be sure to inquire if you have letter mail. At this time, notifications are not submitted for letter mail, as we continue our transitional process with the vendor, we hope to have this feature available soon.

If the items being shipped are not USPS first class letter mail, then tracking is required. USPS tracking may be in the form of Certified Mail, Express Mail, and Priority Mail, or purchased separately. Packages being shipped via DHL, Fed Ex, and UPS automatically come with a tracking number.

Items that do not meet the first-class letter mail criteria and do not have tracking will be returned to sender.


Students may also receive packages and pick them up from the The University of Alabama Mail Center. Campus Mail Service will make every attempt to have packages available in a timely manner. However, Campus Mail Service is not responsible for packages not delivered in a timely manner.  Please be aware of the hours of operations and that overnight and priority shipping does not guarantee that packages will be available for pickup at the times the carrier provided.
