How Do I Change My Address?

To change your address to or from your MICA Campus Address, please go to the USPS Website and follow the instructions to change your address.

PLEASE do not use MICA'S main/business addresses in your mail forwarding, to or from. 

NEW! The US Postal Service has put in place new protocols for mail forwarding. You may need to go in person and show your id to finalize your mail forwarding. This step is to avoid fraudulent mail forwarding from bad actors. From the USPS website: 

The U.S. Postal Service is enhancing security protocols surrounding its Change of Address (COA) service by implementing additional identity verification methods. These enhancements are designed to address global identity theft concerns, and to protect our customers' information. The Change of Address service remains simple and convenient to use. It can be completed in a few steps, online at, or by visiting one of more than 33,000 local Post Office locations.

A Word About Amazon

If you’re ordering from Amazon to the residence halls, please include the following in your delivery instructions:

“Please deliver to (street address), not 1401 W Mount Royal. Delivery hours: Mon-Fri, 10-5“.

In the past and now over the summer, Amazon drivers have forwarded residence hall packages to Bunting, and only your instructions will deliver them directly to your residence hall. We wanted to make sure that you get your packages in a timely manner. 


When your package arrives, you will receive an email notification from Pitney Bowes. Please come to your residence hall package room, Monday-Friday, 10-5, show your ID and pick up your packages. Mail will be placed in your mailbox by 11:00 am, located in the lobby area of your residence hall (keys issued at move-in by the Office of Residence Life).

Please note: we do not wipe down or quarantine packages. Please wash your hands after touching a package.

What if I have a bunch of packages?

If you have more packages that you can carry by yourself, either bring a friend or pick up a rolling basket at the front desk area of your residence hall. In Founders', if you can't find any in Latrobe House, try Leake Hall.

Please refrain from ordering perishable food items (e.g. Hello Fresh, etc) or freight items (over 150 lbs). We cannot accommodate these items. 

If you have any questions or concerns, such as that you are looking for a package, but did not receive an email notification, please email with your tracking number and we will look up your package. Please don’t come in person to ask about a package that has not arrived.

Quarantine Housing and Packages

If you are assigned to quarantine housing, you will be instructed to take all the belongings you need with you when you move into your new room. Quarantine means quarantine, or no contact from the outside for your protection and the protection of your fellow students and the staff. If a package arrives while you are in quarantine, you will receive instructions about how to move forward. Consider that you may not need everything that you order and can either email us with the name of someone you designate to pick up the package, or you can wait and we will hold your package until you are safe to return to your regular on-campus housing. Please email with your tracking number to discuss specific packages.
