 Addressing Domestic and International Mail

To ensure ease of package pick-up, below are tips for students and parents when sending, tracking, and receiving packages:

  • Double check name, address, and the ASU zip code. Always be sure that the name is spelled correctly and is in agreement with what might appear on a student ID card.
  • Check your mail box daily, especially if you are expecting a package.  A “Package Received Notification Form” will be placed in your box when received.  If your package does not have a tracking number, the ASUPO is unable to track your package or verify that the specific package has arrived on our premises.
  • Perishables: Please note that the ASUPO does not have the capacity to refrigerate packages.
  •  Additional tips for mailing items:
    • Type or machine print all address information
    • Print clearly and sharply
    • Omit all punctuation such as periods and commas
    • Do not overlap address characters
    • Maintain a uniform left margin
    • Put either the foreign country (in all capital letters) or the city, state, and zip code on the bottom line
    • Use standard two letter state abbreviations
