Mail is delivered to the residential facilities daily, Monday through Friday. All residents are assigned a mailbox in their hall or apartment area. You will share your mailbox with your roommate(s). Hall residents can pick up mail in the residence hall lobby. Apartment residents can pick up mail at the Apartments Community Center. Please encourage people who send you important letters or packages to have them registered, certified, and/or insured. “C.O.D” letters or packages are not accepted at the desks.

Your mail should be addressed like the example below to avoid delays or loss:

Your Name
[Hall/Apartment Community Name], Room/Apartment #[Number]
UMBC, 1000 Hilltop Circle
Baltimore, Maryland 21250

For example:

John Smith
Erickson Hall, Room #105
UMBC, 1000 Hilltop Circle
Baltimore, Maryland 21250

During January, first class mail of the residents who live in the residence halls (not the continuous occupancy halls) is forwarded to the home address. During summer, only first class mail is sent to the permanent address on file. Bulk and third class mail is held until students return to campus. On-campus mail may be sent without a stamp to any location on the UMBC campus from the desks or from the mailroom located in the University Center. Simply mark your envelope “campus mail” and drop it off at the desk. Outgoing mail to off-campus locations requires adequate postage and can be left at the desk for daily pick up, Monday through Friday, or dropped into any U.S. mail box.
