Printing & Mailing Services: Forwarding Student Mail
WHAT HAPPENS TO MAIL RECEIVED AFTER I LEAVE CAMPUS?
Mail received during the summer will be forwarded to the permanent address on file with the registrar’s office.
WHAT HAPPENS TO PACKAGES RECEIVED AFTER I LEAVE CAMPUS?
Any package received via USPS (United States Postal Service) will be forwarded to your permanent address; however, UPS and FedEx packages cannot be forwarded and will be returned to sender.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
Do not file a change of address form either on-line or in paper format with the USPS. The University of Portland’s address—5000 N. Willamette—is a “business address” and individuals (students) cannot file a change of address for a business.
HOW TO UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS
If you do not want mail forwarded but want to receive it directly from a vendor, i.e. Citibank, Verizon, etc., you must contact each business directly and give them your new address. Each vendor will then change your address within their database system.
WHEN MAIL FORWARDING STOPS
If you will be returning in the fall, we will stop forwarding your mail to permanent addresses two weeks prior to the start of school. For students not returning (including graduates), your mail will be forwarded to your permanent address on file with the registrar’s office for one year.
