Mail Service

The Navigator 2012-14

Each student is assigned a mailbox at his or her college. A complete delivery address is essential and must include college street address and zip plus four codes, as listed below. Include your mailbox number after the college name. Check your college mailbox for official university notices even if you have an off-campus mailing address. The following is the only approved format:

Student’s name
UCSC, College name, box
College street address
Santa Cruz, CA 95064-XXXX
(where XXXX is the expanded Zip code (Zip + 4))

Please note: each college mailroom is a physical address recognized by UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. and should not be confused with a USPS post office box.
