Louisiana Tech Post Office
The primary mission of the Louisiana Tech Post Office is to provide speedy and secure distribution of mail and packages for all currently employed Faculty, Staff, Departments and enrolled on-campus students.
The mail room provides all Domestic USPS postal services to its students residing in campus housing. Students will retain mail services as long as they reside in Louisiana Tech campus housing. Mail fees are collected along with dorm room fees.
For off-campus students who wish to rent postal services, they can inquire about it at the customer service window.
Combinations and individual box numbers are no longer necessary. Students are automatically entered into our database upon paying dorm fees. Please let us know as soon as possible if mail/packages are being returned.
UPS, FedEx, DHL and USPS mail/packages are processed daily upon arrival. Please allow time for the mail center staff to complete processing before inquiring about your packages. You will receive an email from Office Services when your mail and/or packages are ready.
International mailing is limited to letter-sized envelopes, weighing up to one ounce. All other international mail must be delivered to the Ruston Post Office for processing.
To receive mail and packages, your university mailing address should be in the following format:
|(Recipient’s FIRST AND LAST NAME) REQUIRED||(as seen on Louisiana Tech Student ID)|
|305 Wisteria St||(middle name helpful for students with common names)|
|Ruston, LA 71272|
*Please note any mail or package received without proper addressee information will be immediately returned to sender. The recipient’s first and last name on the mail or package MUST match their student ID.
Mail & Package Pick-Up
Students must present their student ID card to pick up packages. If items are purchased by someone else (e.g. mom) all items must be “in care of” the person intended. Such as phones, electronic devices, books, etc.
Only the person to whom the package is addressed may receive the package.
UPS, FedEx and DHL deliver student packages to the mail center only. Do not reference your dorm street or room number.
*Note: If package tracking has a “delivered” status you will receive an email from Office Services after it has been processed.
Mail and packages delivered to the mail center will be held for ten days. Please make plans to retrieve them as soon as possible.
If you wish to inquire about your package you must have the tracking number available.
