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 year is here! Please be sure to come by and pick up packages and letter mail before you leave. If there is anything left behind, first class USPS letters can be forwarded but you will need to pay for any packages to be sent to you. If you don’t claim them, they will be returned to the sender.

Please be sure that you discontinue/pause your shipments and/or have them sent to your summer address.

**Mailboxes will remain OPEN during the summer (unlike past years where we have closed them). If there is anything that you will need forwarded, please let us know. You can either email us with your forwarding address or come by and fill out a form.

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 for a short amount of time. You can not complete an address change with USPS!

PACKAGES, PACKAGES, PACKAGES, OH MY! We are getting a ton of items in right now so please be patient for the email from Mail Services as we get items checked in.  Please note that when you get a “delivered” message from either USPS or Amazon, that is when it arrives at their local facility and not at the mailroom. Those usually get sent to you the day PRIOR. We are working very hard for you to get things processed just as quickly as possible! Thanks for your understanding!


We now reside in our new location on the bottom floor McAfee right next to Human Resources, across from Maggie’s. Look for the white awning! 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

**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.
