United States Postal Service (U.S.P.S.)
United Parcel Service (UPS), FedEx and other delivery services
Items mailed (including packages sent through the United States Postal Service) to students living in the residence halls should be addressed as shown in the table below to help ensure a reliable and speedy delivery. Note that the word Hall or Apartments should not follow the building name to save space. Mailings not using this format can be delayed or returned to the sender.
Package and document delivery services like the United Parcel Service (UPS) or FedEx that require a "physical address" should be addressed as shown in the table below for fast and reliable delivery. Packages not using this format can be delayed or returned to the sender.
Mail is delivered directly to each residence hall or complex and posted in their mailboxes. The box number corresponds with the room or apartment number in each hall or complex. As a precautionary measure, it is recommended that checks, plane tickets and other valuables be sent by registered mail. Mail may not be delivered to residence halls during holiday breaks such as semester break and spring break. Stamps are sold in each office, however packages to be sent cannot be accommodated within the hall office. Students who need to mail packages on campus can take advantage of the Copy/Mail Center in the Student Union Building.
Some packages sent with delivery confirmation will require residents to sign for them at MailTech, which serves as the departmental post office for Texas Tech University. Students can visit MailTech at 2903 4th St. in the Administrative Support Building, Room 144 (on Flint Ave near 4th St, north of the Marsha Sharp Freeway.) MailTech's hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (when the University is open.) University Student Housing uses EZTrackIt to track and notify students about packages from delivery services.
If you have recently moved off campus, please be sure to Update Your Forwarding Address with us to make sure you receive all your mail.

- As packages arrive hall staff will tag each package using the carrier bar-coded sticker so we know which packages have been logged in and which have not. This bar code will help the hall office track important information on each package including the student name, package type, carrier type, and the day it arrived.
- After a package is recorded and inventoried, EZTrackIt will send an email notification to each recipient. This way you can find out about your packages faster and pick them up more quickly. Additionally, each student has a customized website where you can view the packages you have awaiting pickup. This is another reason to check your Texas Tech email!
- Finally, when you come to pick up a package you will have to show and swipe your student ID to confirm that you are picking up the right package. We will then scan the package out, so you know which packages you have received and which you have not.
