United States Mail is collected and distributed to the Student Mail Center Monday through Friday, and delivered to each resident's mailbox before 3 p.m. During your first week on campus, you should stop by the Mail Center, located on the second floor of Hinds University Center, to receive your mailbox keys. To ensure that your mail reaches you as quickly as possible, make sure that your correspondents have your correct address as indicated below. If any part of your address is wrong, your mail will take longer to reach you.
