Use Correct Formatting for On-Campus Postal Mail Addresses

Posted on 10/26/2017 4:59:37 PM

Attention: On-campus residents/students

University Postal Services is issuing this mandate in order to provide a better shipping service to IUP. It has come to our attention that the incorrect format is being used for package/letter addressing. This is causing sometimes a significant delay in receiving your mail.

The correct format for IUP 15705 addressing is:

Jane Smith
Crimson Hawks #1234
900 Maple St.
Indiana PA 15705


John Smith
900 Maple St #1234
Indiana PA 15705

These are the only two acceptable formats. The “900 Maple St.” line must be directly above the town. The sorting/processing machinery read addresses from the bottom up.

If you need any assistance or have any questions, please contact Sabrina Lunetto at the Indiana Post Office at 724-465-4771 or your on-campus Post Office at 724-357-2578. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
