Tips for Preparing for Winter Break

We hope you have all had a great semester. Before you leave for winter break, please keep in mind a couple of things:

  • We can not forward packages between semesters, so please pick up your packages before you leave campus
  • Packages that haven't been picked up will be returned to sender after 10 days
  • If your address is changing for next semester, please update your address with all shippers (see Student Mailing Addresses below).

Student Mailing Addresses

Important notes about proper addressing:

  • Please use the student's name as they are registered at Boston College. Use of a nickname may delay the delivery of their package.
  • There is no need to include "Boston College" in the address, as carriers recognize the street addresses as BC locations.
  • Improper addressing leads to delays in delivery from the carrier and sorting in the BC mail room.
