Up-to-date campus addresses for any University employee can be found in the ISU phonebook.

All mail going from one campus location to another may be sent via Campus Mail. This includes student addresses in the Residence Hall system. This does NOT include student addresses in SUV or Fredrickson Court. Mail routes are run daily, with most buildings receiving one stop per day. All incoming US and Campus Mail will be delivered to a specific location in your building. Any outgoing mail you have at that time will be picked up for processing and delivery. Outgoing Campus Mail received by 4:30 pm will be delivered the next business day.

Address should include:

  • Name of recipient
  • Department Name
  • Building and Room
  • University Mail Code

The University Mail Code is the same as the ZIP+4 code and can be found in the ISU phone book online version, and also in our Campus ZIP Codes page.
