Receiving and Sending Mail

Receiving Mail

Accurate Mailing Address - Using the correct mailing address will be the fastest and most efficient way of receiving your mail on time.  It is very important that all of your correspondents use your given name and middle initial with your hub number when sending your mail. If you have a name that is commonly used your middle initial may make the difference between how long it takes us to determine who a piece of mail should go to.

Your mailing address should follow these examples:

For USPS
Name, Hub
Dickinson College
PO Box 1773
Carlisle, PA 17013-2896

For UPS, FED-EX, DHL, etc.
Name, Hub
Dickinson College
28 N. College St.
Carlisle, PA 17013-2896

Using the addresses above will help to ensure accurate delivery to your student.

FRATERNITY AND SORORITY MAIL
