Mail Center Overview
The Mail Center processes all incoming and outgoing mail for Trinity University’s on-campus students and departments. Additionally, the Mail Center coordinates and offers consultations about a variety of bulk mail projects.
The Mail Center's mission is to provide high-quality, cost-effective mail services to the University community. Its main objective is to satisfy customers’ needs and provide the highest level of service to the campus community.
Your personal Trinity University mailing format is:
First and Last Name
One Trinity Place # Student Box Number
San Antonio, TX 78212
To avoid delivery issues, do not use the following terms in your address: Box, P.O. Box, Rm #, Hall, Bldg. or Ste.
As long as you reside in one of Trinity’s on-campus residence halls (does not include City Vista), you will have a campus mailbox in the Mail Center.
Incoming new domestic students usually receive information about their personal campus mailbox numbers and combinations via email in mid-July. Incoming new international students usually receive their information in June. Your mailbox assignment (box number) will remain the same during your entire time here at Trinity, as long as you reside in the residence halls on campus.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) delivers incoming mail Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
The Mail Center will sort both your first-class mail (letters and flats) and third-class mail (periodicals, magazines, newspapers, etc.) and deposit it into your student mailbox carrel.
A USPS postal carrier picks up outgoing mail at the end of each business day.
You can send outgoing mail either directly from inside the Mail Center or from the blue U.S. Postal Service Collection box conveniently located right outside of the Mail Center.
Upon the delivery of your package, the Mail Services Center will scan the package into an internal tracking system which will automatically send you a delivery confirmation email to your Tmail.
If you have questions about your package’s delivery or status, please contact the Mail Services Center.
New international students may begin to send packages to campus July 1. New domestic students may begin doing so August 1.
To pick up a package from the Mail Center, you will need your Tiger Card. It will serve as your signature for the package(s) you pick up.
You will receive a second email confirming that your package has been picked up at the Mail Center.
