Why Rent a TCU Box? 

Many students rent a TCU Box as first year students 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 early for move in. We will hold packages in a secure and accessible location at the Post Office for pickup on the day of arrival.
