Student Mailboxes

Every student living in the Residence Halls will be assigned a mailbox during the first week of his/her first semester.

The address will be as follows:

(Student's Name)
GSW Box (4-digits)
800 GSW State Univ Dr
Americus, GA 31709-4376 

All incoming mail must have the student's name or it will be returned to sender. (Mail using the names of parents, siblings, friends, etc. will be returned.)

The address is a GSW Box, using PO Box may cause delays or prevent your package from reaching you.

Your GSW box assignment must be picked up at the retail window with a photo id. The student retain this same mailbox every semester as long as he/she continuously lives on campus.

Students may submit a forwarding request form if he/she will no longer be living on campus. We also offer temporary forwarding for summers or semester breaks.

Without a forwarding request, all mail will be returned to sender, and processed according to the rules and regulations of the United States Postal Service. In addition, UPS, FedEx and DHL cannot be forwarded. Any packages received for students who no longer live on campus will be refused and returned to sender.


Shipping

All outgoing letters and parcels must be properly addressed and sealed. All parcels must have a valid return address.

We would be happy to measure and/or weigh any letter or parcel during retail hours to ensure proper postage.

We also offer USPS packaging products such as:

  • Stamps
  • Priority Mail Express flat rate envelopes
  • Priority envelopes
  • Flat rate boxes
  • Regional envelopes
  • Regional boxes

Note: We do not offer non-USPS packing supplies (manila envelopes, packing tape, etc). These items are available at the GSW Campus Bookstore (next door to the GSW Post Office).


Package Receiving

Students may receive mail from:

  • USPS
  • UPS
  • FedEx (Ground & Express)
  • DHL

 Upon arrival the packages will be scanned, the student will receive an email notification of arrival, and a notice will be placed in the student's mailbox. The student must bring this pickup notice to the GSW Post Office window during retail hours to pick up packages.

Note: There may be a delay between the email notification, and the pickup notice. Emails are automatically sent out via our tracking system upon scanning, but the packages are not available for pickup until all processing is complete.
