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.

Students who choose to study abroad, leave of absence or have off campus living privileges will be charged for a mailbox ($25) 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 ($25) 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 through e-mail-  If you use e-mail, you MUST send the e-mail through your Vanderbilt account. 

You will be charged for your 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 keep their same mailbox address on campus can do so at a $25 per semester fee. This request and payment must be made in person at the Station B Post Office. For graduate students to keep the same address you must contact Station B by June 1st for the fall semester and January 1st for the spring semester, if you contact us after those dates you may not be able to keep the same PMB number. Box payments are cash or checks only.
