Overview

TCU Boxes

Students, faculty and staff can rent TCU Post Office Boxes. The U.S. Postal Service does not deliver to dorms or TCU street addresses. When you rent a post office box at our facility, you can receive letters and packages to your TCU Box. Mail sent to non-renters is returned to sender as unknown.

Rental Fee

Rent a TCU Box for $55 a year. The fee covers the period from May 15th through the following spring semester. If you rent a box any time during the year, the fee is $55 and the rental period terminates May 15th. Rentals may be renewed each year online or in person at the Post Office.

How to Rent a Box

Postal boxes are rented to incoming freshman at orientations. Students in last orientations can rent prior to orientation by phone. Otherwise boxes can be rented in person at the retail window after orientation. Renting boxes the following years can be completed online when current renters receive an e-mail invitation to renew during our online renewal process in April.

Guidelines

TCU Boxes are for receiving personal mail only. No business may be operated out of a TCU Box.For more shipping advice, click here.

Closing a TCU Box

When closing a TCU Box, you must fill out a forwarding card at the TCU Post Office.

Why Rent a TCU Box?

Many students rent a TCU Box as freshman and continue to rent the same box the entire time they are attending TCU. This allows them to maintain the same mailing address, no matter how often they change physical addresses. In addition, many students will ship household items and clothes to their TCU Box starting July 1st. We will hold packages in a secure and accessible location at the Post Office for pickup on the day of arrival.
