Important notes about proper addressing:

  • Please use the student's name as they are registered at Boston College. Use of a nickname may delay the delivery of their package.
  • There is no need to include "Boston College" in the address, as carriers recognize the street addresses as BC locations.
  • Please double check that you are using the correct zip code to be sure your package is delivered to Boston College (and not a similar nearby address).
  • Improper addressing leads to delays in delivery from the carrier and sorting in the BC mail room.
