Mail Box Fees

All underclass / transfer underclassmen students are assigned mailboxes as entering first-year students and will keep the same mailbox for 4 years or until graduation.

Students who choose to study abroad or have off campus living privileges will be charged for a mailbox ($20) on a per semester charge (Spring & Fall). If you choose to give up your mailbox, when returning to school you will not be assigned the same mailbox number as before. If you do not want to be charged for a mailbox you must do the following:

Go to our mail forwarding link and put in a permanent forwarding. If you are studying abroad you have two options. You may forward your mail temporarily (Temp - Study Abroad) and pay a fee ($20) to retain your current mailbox and number or you may relinquish your box and upon your return you will need to request a new PMB mailbox in person at Station B. You will not be able to ship anything to Station B unless you receive a new PMB mailbox number, otherwise things that you ship/order may be returned to sender.

This request must be made in person, on our website at the link given above or over the phone (615-322-2934) you will be charged for you box at the end of the 2nd week of any new semester. Charges will not be removed after this time. Please specify you want the box fee removed when coming in or calling.

If you do not follow these guidelines you will be charged for your mailbox.

Graduate students who wish to have a mailbox on campus may rent a mailbox at our Peabody location only. This request must be made in person at the Station B Post Office. The fee will need to be paid prior to the assignment of the box. Box payments are cash or checks only.
