Mailing Services

Sending to a resident student

Ritchie HallMail will be delivered to a student's residence hall by Mailing Services, but packages delivered by most carriers (U.S. Express Mail, Fed Ex, UPS, etc.) will be sent to DocuZip in the Student Union.

DocuZip then will notify the student that a package is ready for pickup.


What address do I use?

STANDARD MAIL (e.g., cards, letters, magazines, newspapers):

Recipient's name
The University of Akron
Residence hall and room number
P.O. Box 1350
Akron, OH 44309

PACKAGES (or vendors who will not send packages to a P.O. box):

Recipient's name
Residence hall and room number
185 E. Mill St.
Akron, OH 44325


How do I pick up a package?

All student packages can be picked up at Rob's Dining Hall (map).

The hall will accept packages for only students who reside on campus. Please avoid using nicknames or aliases, as those names do not appear on the official residence-hall roster that we use to notify students that a package has arrived.

Also at DocuZip...

  • Buy stamps
  • Ship UPS packages
