  • Saturday and Sunday:  CLOSED

Mailing to Campus 

All RESIDENT students are assigned mailboxes in the Student Center. Students can find their assignment (both mailbox number and mailbox combination) on the my Curry Portal. Mail for RESIDENT students should be addressed using the following format:             

John Doe
Mailbox 3456
Curry College
1071 Blue Hill Ave.
Milton, Ma. 02186

  • Please do NOT use the phrase "P.O. Box".  Student mailboxes on campus are NOT U.S. Post Office boxes. They are Curry College mailboxes. Using the phrase "P.O. Box" may result in the mail being mishandled by the U.S.P.S. (mail addressed this way may never reach Curry College)
  • Please do NOT include the residence hall or the room number as part of the address. The U.S. Post Office only recognizes 1071 Blue Hill Ave. as our address. Putting the student's room number on mail increases the possibility of mishandling along the way.

Curry College Mail Services uses a tracking system to scan in and track most packages for students. Students receive notification via the web portal of any packages available for pick-up. Large packages received via the U.S. Mail (U.S.P.S.) are scanned in with a notification sent to students. Small packets received via the U.S. Mail which will fit into the Student Center mailboxes may be placed directly into those mailboxes. (Students should be encouraged to check their mailboxes regularly.)

ALL packages received via UPS., FedEx, DHL, LaserShip etc. are scanned in regardless of size.

Outgoing mail is picked up by the U.S. Postal Service between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
