Student Mail Services

All student mail is processed by the Student Post Office (SPO) in Cate Center, Oliver House. Student mail services are for personal use only.

Residents will be assigned a mailing address when moving on campus through OU Housing.

Locations and Hours

Residents should file a change of address at www.ou.edu/spo/change before they move off-campus to ensure mail delivery is not interrupted. Filing with the USPS will not forward your mail from a campus address.

To ensure accurate delivery of mail, please be sure to include:

Recipient’s full name
Street address
Box number
City state and zip

Only mail addressed to current students is deliverable.  All other mail is returned to the sender as Undeliverable as Addressed.

 

For a full list of deliverable OU dorm addresses, view the download below.

Students will receive letters and flats (magazines, newspapers, etc.) at their resident hall mailbox.

Outgoing letters and flats with postage can be dropped off in Resident Hall outgoing mailboxes or at the SPO.

Packages will be available for pick up at OU Locker System or SPO.

OU Locker System

Students who receive any package will be notified from the SPO portal once it has been processed and is ready for pick up. 

***Delivery confirmation from the shipper does not imply the package is ready.***
