Mail and packages

Students living on campus receive a mail box which is labeled the same as their room. All correspondence mailed to students must include this information i.e. their building and room/unit number:

Canada Post (regular mail) Courier deliveries
Student's name Student's name
Building and Room number Student's phone number
UVic Student Residences UVic Residence Office
PO Box 2100 STN CSC University of Victoria
Victoria, BC Parking Lot #5, off Sinclair Rd.
V8W 3A4 Victoria, BC
  V8P 5C2

Mail deliveries usually start the first Monday after classes start (see Residence Services' list of important dates).

Letters

Use the regular mail address (see above). Letters are first delivered to University of Victoria Mail Services then forwarded to the Residence Services Office. Once letters are received at the Residence Services Office they are then put into students' mailboxes.

Parcels and large packages*

Use the regular mail address (see above). Parcels, large packages, priority mail and registered mail are sent to University of Victoria Mail Services before being forwarded to the Residence Services Office. Once they receive the parcel, an email is sent to let the student know that a special delivery has arrived.

Boxes and trunks*

Boxes, trunks, etc. should be addressed to the courier mailing address (see above). There is no storage space in the office area and shipping companies will not deliver to residence rooms. During the academic year, if we receive a courier during office hours, an email will be sent to let the student know that a special delivery has arrived.

*Students picking up parcels and/or courier packages: can do so during office hours; are required to sign for the package; need to present or show a copy of the email notification; need to present photo ID.
