Your Mailbox

You are assigned a mailbox by the Housing Department when you receive your housing assignment. ALL STUDENTS LIVING ON CAMPUS HAVE A MAILBOX, locals included.

Each student has a private mailbox; you will not share it with roommates or family members. Your mailbox is in no way tied to your dorm or room number. Please use the correct address to receive your mail.

Check your box regularly; this is one of the main ways Adams State stays in touch with you.

When you move off campus, graduate or transfer, you no longer have a mailbox assigned to you. You will need to notify the mailroom staff of your new address in order to continue receiving your mail.

In the summer, only those students living on campus will receive their mail in the SUB mailboxes, even if you plan on returning fall semester. All other mail is automatically forwarded to the student’s mailing address that was supplied to the Housing Department at the end of the spring semester.

Student mailboxes are for personal mail only, no business mail is allowed.

To open your mailbox –

  • Spin the dial to the LEFT (counter clockwise) 3 times to clear the lock, then stop at the first number of your combination.
  • Turn the dial RIGHT (clockwise); pass the first number one time and stop at the second number.
  • Turn back to the LEFT and go directly to the third number.
  • Turn the dial RIGHT and PULL at the same time to open the door.

BE SURE TO SPIN THE DIAL A FEW TIMES TO LOCK YOUR BOX WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS.
