Mail Services

Mail Services is here to assist students with their letter and package needs. It is not an official U.S. Post Office, but it does provide many of the same services. This is where students come to collect their mail and packages, buy stamps and envelopes, send letters and ship packages. We offer services from USPS, UPS and FedEx. 

The end of the school year is here! Here are some tips before you go:

  • Please be sure to pick up packages and letter mail before you leave. If there is anything left behind, we can ship your packages, but you will need to pay for them to be sent to you. If you don’t claim them, they will be returned to the sender, so please be sure to contact us.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Letter mail isn’t forwarded during the summer. However, if there is something critical that you will need, please email us to let us know what that may be and provide your forwarding address.
  • Please be sure that you discontinue/pause your subscription shipments and/or have them sent to your summer address.
  • IF YOU ARE GRADUATING OR NOT RETURNING - please contact all pertinent businesses, friends and family who send you mail to update your new address. Your mail will only be forwarded from the mailroom for a short amount of time. You cannot complete an address change with USPS!


SUMMER HOURS (effective 5/6/23):


Monday - Friday, 10:00a - 4:00p    (Note: please contact us if you need to make arrangements to stop by outside of these hours.)




We reside on the bottom floor McAfee right next to Human Resources. Look for the orange doors that say Mail Services! Call 503-768-7867 or email with questions.



Addressing Mail to Lewis & Clark College

Departments, Faculty & Staff Students
Department (important!)
615 S Palatine Hill Rd
Portland, OR 97219
MSC # (**not PO Box)
615 S Palatine Hill Rd
Portland, OR 97219

**Addresses on all incoming mail should include “MSC” (Mail Stop Code) instead of “LC or PO BOX.” This will ensure that mail will come directly to Lewis & Clark College and will prevent any mail from mistakenly being sent to the downtown post office.
