Siena Community Mail
All student mail must be correctly addressed and include the student’s SPOB (Student Post Office Box) number. In particular, when subscribing to magazines and newspapers, remember to inform the publisher to include the SPOB on the address. Mail received without this information will be Returned To Sender for insufficient address. Mail that is correctly addressed will be delivered to each student’s Student Post Office Box once per day.
If a piece of mail is too large for the student’s mailbox, a package slip notice (PS Form 3907, Mail Pickup Notice) will be delivered to the mailbox. The student will need to bring at least one form of picture identification AND the package notice to pick up the oversized mail item. These packages/items will not be released to any individual without proper picture identification. Student mail can only be accessed by using the mailbox key issued to the student. In the case of misplaced/lost keys a new key must be ordered. In order to comply with Federal Postal Procedures, the Siena College Post Office staff is prohibited from surrendering the students’ mail to them.
Example: Joe Smith
Any general mailing being sent to the entire on-campus student body does NOT require each student’s individual SPOB number or the student’s name (i.e. Student Directory, Alumni Magazine etc.). Please contact the college post office for preparation of such mailings. These mailings will be delivered to the student mail boxes on a first come, first serve basis.
Faculty and Administration Mail
Mail received via The United States Postal Service as well as inter-campus mail destined for faculty and administrators must bear the college’s full address as well as the department and building.
Example: (Incoming) Dr. Joseph Smith Psychology Department
Example: (Inter-campus) Dr. Joseph Smith
The sender’s name and department is required in the return address area of any outgoing business mail piece. This information is necessary for the purpose of charge-back.
