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. 


1) PRIOR to the end of the school year:

  1. a) Please be sure to send any changes in your forwarding address to the Registrar’s Office. It is important to keep the Registrar informed of all address changes.
  2. b) Check and clean out your box and pick up all packages. If you leave anything behind, all items will be returned.

2) NOTE: All student mail boxes will be CLOSED and mail will be forwarded for everyone during the summer unless you specifically request to have your box remain open! Contact Mail Services by email at or come by the Mailroom to let us know if:

  • You would like to leave your mailbox open
  • You are NOT RETURNING as a student or are GRADUATING

3) Please contact your bank or credit card company/ies to update your address to avoid a delay in receiving your statements. Please also contact all family and friends!

Have a great summer!

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

**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.
