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. 


Welcome, students! We’re excited to have you! The beginning of the school year is always extremely busy with tons of packages and mail coming in so please be patient with us! We strive to get your packages checked in within 24hrs of receipt (note that Amazon and USPS will send you a ‘delivered’ message once it’s scanned in at the local hub, not when they deliver here) but it may take a bit longer while we’re getting in 100’s of items! Once you receive a notice from Mail Services then you can come by and pick things up!

Addressing Mail to Lewis & Clark College

Departments, Faculty & Staff Students
Department (important!)

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.
