How to Send Items

How do I mail letters to my daughter?

All residential students are required to have a box on campus. Your daughter will receive her box number via email approximately one month before arriving on campus. The information will also be given out again at check-in.

Addressing mail to a box.
Daughter’s Name
7916 Williamson Road
Box #
Roanoke, VA 24020

Do not address U.S. mail with your daughter’s room number because it could be returned to sender. Please make sure to use your daughter’s name as registered with the university (first and last), as nicknames will not be in the mailbox system and mail could be returned to sender.


Deliveries and incoming packages
  • All incoming mail, including ground and overnight deliveries to students from all carriers, is delivered to the printing, mailing, and shipping services (PMSS) office in Botetourt Hall weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • PMSS notifies recipients at their Hollins email address.
  • A handcart is available for heavy packages; it must be signed out and returned to the mail center.
  • Weekend and evening deliveries are left at the security department in Botetourt.
  • No after-hours access is permitted

For correct shipping, use the campus route/street address indicated below.

All shipped packages should be addressed as follows:

Your Name
7916 Williamson Road
Box #
Roanoke, VA 24020

SPECIAL NOTE: Online retailers sometimes will not accept a Hollins University street address. In this case, either:

  1. Put the street address first with the box number directly after “Road” or “Street.”
  2. Put your box number next to your name.
