Sending to a resident student


Mail will be delivered once per day to your residence hall, Monday through Friday, at varying times. It is important to use the address listed below for ALL mail and packages. Otherwise, your mail may be delayed in its delivery or returned to sender by the post office. Mailing Services will only accept packages for UA students who reside in an on-campus residence hall. Please avoid using pet names or aliases as those names do not appear in our listing.

Ritchie Hall

What address do I use?

For regular USPS mail and packages (UPS, FedEx, DHL)

Student Name
Hall, Room Number and Letter
185 E. Mill Street
Akron, OH 44325

For example, if Tom Jones lives in Bulger 302a the address would be:

Tom Jones
Bulger, 302A
185 E. Mill Street
Akron, OH 44325

How do I pick up a package?

Packages delivered by most carriers (US Express Mail, FedEx, UPS, etc.) can be picked up at the Department of Residence Life and Housing at Ritchie Residence Hall. UA will accept packages for only students who reside in a UA residence hall. 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.

Under no circumstances will our staff at each residence hall service desk accept a package on behalf of a student, so please use the sample address above as your guide when sending flowers or other perishable items.

Amazon Orders

There is an Amazon Hub Locker location at 290 E Exchange Street, Akron, OH 444304. This location is located across the street from campus and is an excellent option if you/your student is seeking same day or two delivery from Amazon.
