Our Best Answer - Where do I send/receive mail?

Mail at UCSB

All Residence Hall residents receive mail sent through US Postal Service (USPS) at the Post Office in the University Center (UCen). For packages sent through USPS, a pick-up slip will be put into the mailbox at the UCen Post Office notifying the student to pick up the package at the UCen Post Office counter.Mail and packages sent via private carriers (UPS, FedEx, etc) are delivered directly to the resident’s residence hall room by that company’s delivery person.

For further information, please visit the Housing and Residential Services page on mail services, or you may contact their office directly by phone at (805) 893-2760.
